On Social Media, a photo of a large building is being shared by many internet users with a claim that it is the house of Congress leader Ghulam Nabhi Azad in Kashmir. Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.
Claim: Image of the house of Ghulam Nabi Azad in Kashmir.
Fact: The image shared as the house of Ghulam Nabi Azad in Kashmir is actually that of ‘Hotel Taj Vivanta Dal’ in Srinagar. So, the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When the photo in the tweet is subjected to Google Reverse Image Search technique, search results obtained said it to be ‘Hotel Taj Vivanta Dal’ in Srinagar.
Information from the Taj Vivanta hotels website confirmed its presence in Kashmir with the name ‘Hotel Taj Vivanta Dal’. On the hotel’s website, many photos of that hotel can be seen but the particular photo used in the tweet wasn’t found.
On the further search, that photo of the hotel was found in an article of ‘Greater Kashmir’. From the article, it was found that the photo is of ‘Hotel Taj Vivanta Dal’ in Srinagar. The photo gallery of ‘Hotel Taj Vivanta Dal’ on Google maps has that photo and this can be seen here.
To conclude, the building in the image is not the house of Ghulam Nabi Azad in Kashmir. It is the Taj Vivanta hotel in Srinagar.
