“beautiful structure”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

This shrine is beautiful.there were too many pigeons around the shrine.this is one of the oldest Sufi shrines in Srinagar. Tourists are not allowed inside the shrine but can click pictures from outside.it is situated in the old city of Srinagar by the river.

“Excellent Architecture”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Architecture of this place is extraordinary... You need to visit it to see it firsthand.... but non muslims can't go inside and we had to be content with peeping through a window.....

“Superb Sturctural design.....”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Located on the main street of one of the market.
Passing thru the security at the main gate. few steps down Ladies have to have head covered in decent attire getting access to the small area in the Durgah. Beautiful chandeliers inside.

The Shrine from outside is a masterpiece of an architecture. The whole building is made in interlocks of wood and not a single nail used to build it.
Amazing hand carving done.
