The Jamia Masjid is a beautiful, simple and yet very beautiful mosque in Srinagar. The reddish building and the green garden stand in beautiful contrast and have a very calm and serene atmosphere to them.
There are 370 wooden pillars to the mosque which makes it a remarkable sight. It is a sacred place as well as a tourist attraction, as a result. Due to its Indo-Saracenic architecture it has become a very important part of the history of architecture in Srinagar as well. The British influences on the structure are worth noting.
Located in the heart of the city, this lovely mosque is a wonderful spiritual site for the traveler. Be sure to visit it to experience its beauty as well as the calmness it has.

Jamia masjid is a very old and big masjid in the Kashmir. It's located in the downtown area of srinagar. I have a very strong attachment to this place as I live near this place. Many a times I offer Salah in this beautiful masjid. The market around this masjid is very famous for the locals in particular and for the foreigners in general.
Good architecture.. Very peaceful environment eye catching wooden work... surrounded by local market
