Jamia Masjid - Review

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, Srinagar Reviews

  • Good architecture.. Very peaceful environment eye catching wooden work... surrounded by local market

  • The architectural Work of the mosque is quiet remarkable n the garden N pond in the centre is beautiful to watch.

  • The Jama Masjid of Srinagar is situated at Nowhatta, in the middle of the old city. An important mosque in Srinagar, it was built by Sultan Sikandar in 1400 AD. Later, the son of Sultan Sikandar, Zain-ul-Abidin got the mosque extended. The attractions of the Jama Masjid of Srinagar, Kashmir include beautiful Indo-Saracenic architecture, a magnificent courtyard and 370 wooden pillars. Another feature of the mosque is the peace and tranquility inside it, standing out against the hustle of the old bazaars around it. Thousands of Muslims assemble at the mosque every Friday to offer their prayers.  Jamia Masjid is known as one of the sacred shrines of Islamic followers. Be it the holiness or the constructional elegance, Jamia Masjid is quite unparalleled in every aspect. Comprised of 370 pillars of wood, Jamia Masjid symbolizes one of the best architectural specimen which survived the ravages of time ever since it was constructed in the valley of Jammu & Kashmir.  While looking into the origin and construction of Jamia Masjid, the name of Maharaja Pratap Singh comes several times as it was during his Kingdom that the maintenance and repair works of the Mosque was carried out. Pratap Singh enthusiastically encouraged the re-construction of Jamia Masjid many a time and even offered financial assistance too.

  • Different and unique architecture We don't see this style of architecture in other masjids in India. It's really special and different. Spread out with large interiors located in the middle of old city. A must visit place.
