Also known as Khanqah masjid, this stunning mosque is worth visiting in the city of Srinagar. Built of wood, it may not seem like a very interesting place to see but the amazing architecture makes it one of the must-see places in the area. History say that this is one of the oldest mosque in Srinagar. The person behind the mosque Mir Sayyid Ali Hamadani was one of the most influential travelers who came to Srinagar in 14th century. Simply built but intricately decorated, the dark wood building looks gorgeous with the lovely mountains as the backdrop and the picturesque Jhelum river flowing in front of it. The interiors are equally beautiful and the mosque has some beautiful British influences to its architecture. The place is calm and peaceful as not a lot of tourists visit it which comes as a surprise. If you want to see a unique place in Srinagar, do visit this one. However, entry to the mosque might be restricted only to the Muslims. Hence, make sure you seek permission of the authorities before entering inside this holy place.
