The Hazrat Bal Mosque in Srinagar, often called just “The Hazratbal” is the most important pilgrimage sites in the city and perhaps one of the most important for Haj Pilgrims other than the Mecca.
The lovely white mosque is serene and beautiful in every way. Watching the pigeons take flight around the mosque is a lovely and calming experience. Majesty is in the very name of the mosque. “Hazrat means majesty while “Bal” means enclosure. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that majesty is truly enclosed in the lovely place.
A definite must visit for the religious, but art lovers, culture seekers, history lovers and lovers of architecture will also certainly love this place.

Hazratbal Mosque, Srinagar Reviews - Write a Review
I personally went to this place on 6th oct 2017. The place was a little bit crowded with people coming out when the prayer ended. The guards always generous helped us to enter the shrine. The people inside the mosque were nice and humble. They gave us the information about the mosque and everything. It was a nice experience.
Being South Indian on 02 Oct 17 had been to this Masjid after 33 years. In 1984 I visited this place with my son, had a chance to kiss the holy hair and that Imam told me "you are the luckiest person". Whereas, now car driver advise me not to go as it is Bid’at and Shirk. With little knowledge of Islam and history, Kashmiri people are devided and deviated after listening the modern deviated scholars. One of the holiest place in Kashmir valley and holds the Holy Hair of our Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. People go there to worship Allaah only but also pays respect and love to this holy hair of Prophet ﷺ . Whoever write bad comments without Islamic knowledge and history of Islam, let them study carefully, ponder the Holy Qur'aan verses with Tafsirs, Hadiths and life of Sahabah. Here are few for the Barakah from the holy relics. In Holy Qur'aan: Surah Al Baqarah Verse 248-252. About Taaboot ((box which contains Prophet Moses Stick, Remanents of the Tablets, A pot of Manna, a pair of Shoes and Prophet Haroon 's relics) mentioned in Qur'aan, with this box Jews used to take Barakah- Tafsir ibn Kathir and Tafsir Jalalain. And also: Surah 12, Yusuf Verse: 93. Take this, my shirt, and cast it over the face of my father; he will be able to see. And bring me your family, all together. Anas b. Malik (رضي الله عنه) reported: When Allaah's Messenger (ﷺ) had thrown pebbles at the Jamra and had sacrificed the animal, he turned (the right side) of his head towards the barber, and i. e shaved it. He then called Abu Talha al-Ansari رضي الله عنه and gave hairs to him. He then turned his left side and asked the barber to shave. And the barber shaved and gave hairs to Abu Talha رضي الله عنه and told him to distribute it amongst the Sahabah- Muslim :: Book 7 : Hadith 2994. The Sahaabah used to seek barakah from the sweat of the Prophet (ﷺ), his saliva, garment, ablution water, and his hair. Sharh Riyaadh as-Saaliheen (4/243). Uthman ibn Abdullaah ibn Mawhab رضي الله عنه said that, “My family sent me to Umm Salama, the wife of the Prophet ﷺ, [after he ﷺ had passed away] with a bowl of water,” and [the narrator] held three fingers together to indicate the size of the small container that held some of the blessed hairs of the Prophet ﷺ. “And whenever anyone would be afflicted by the evil eye or any type of harm, they would send a vessel [of water] to her [to dip the hairs into, then drink for its healing ability]. So I peered inside the container, and inside saw a few reddish hairs of the Prophet, ﷺ ” - Sahih al-Bukhari. It is also narrated that Khalid ibn al-Walid رضي الله عنه , took some of the hairs from the Prophet ﷺ while the latter was shaving his head. He would kiss those locks, and press them against his eyes out of reverence and love. He placed those hairs in the front of his cap, which he wore to every one of his battles thereafter, and later remarked, “I put them in the front of my cap and I did not face any direction [in battle], except that victory would be granted for me there,” and in another narration, “I did not attend any battle except that I was given victory by means of them [ie. the blessed hairs].” - Ibn Kathir, al-Bidayah wa al-Nihayah. Ibn Sireen [رضي الله عنه] remarked, “For me to have one of those hairs would be more beloved to me than the world and all it contains!” - Ahmad.
It is one among the best masjids of the valley but it supports shirk which is not allowed in Islam I really wonder how we can pray to the hair of Muhammad(pbuh) while he himself Said," worship Allah alone who has created you and me ," Then why do we people go there and pray to that hair May Allah show us right path
Best religious place for muslims and is very good place as such it is located on bank of dal lake.
Peace and tranquility from Allah and Mercy from Allah's Messenger Muhammad Mustafa salAllahu 'alayhi wasallam.
