Srinagar, Feb 22 (IANS): Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, who is on a J&K visit, paid obeisance at the Hazratbal shrine and the Shankaracharya temple on Thursday after starting his day with a shikara ride in Srinagar's Dal Lake.

Sachin spent over an hour on the Dal Lake while many joy riding locals and tourists used the opportunity to see him boating beside them.
