In the middle of the Old Delhi streets among the poverty and shops selling everything from food to old car and lorry parts the mosque stands out as an icon to prayer. On entering the mosque those that are not suitably dressed are decked out in some unflattering material and then charged for the privilege. Although photography is allowed for 200 rupees video cameras have to be locked in lockers for the duration of stay. The mosque is the largest and best known in India with a courtyard capable of holding over 25,000 devotees.

Located in downtown Srinagar in the middle of the city is magnificent. The stylish wooden pillars adds to the beauty of the architecture. It’s a huge mosque which can accommodate 35000people for prayers. It’s very peaceful inside and has a small garden with the fountain besides.

Happened to cross by and stepped in to take a look, was raining when we went so walked within the mosque premises. Its a well made mosque and within the busy bazar, recommended for those who are interested in architecture and who like to know more about other cultures and faiths. I found the structure very striking and very different from other mosques around the world. It definitely is worth a visit!

One of the important attractions in Srinagar, this is a good place to visit and take a stroll through the surrounding bazaar. However, the place definitely needs a bit more TLC to make it a must see place in Kashmir.
