(200+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
In the heart of the old city lies Jama Masjid Mosque, where thousands of Muslim devotees come to pray. The massive mosque features four towers, three gates, and two 40 m (131 ft) minarets made of sandstone and white marble, all spreading over a surface of 1,200 sq m (12,910 sq ft). Built between 1644 and 1658 by more than 5,000 artisans with Shah Jahan at the helm, the mosque contains intricate carvings on its walls as well as verses from the Koran. Inside, observe the black and white marble floor, which resembles a Muslim prayer mat, and a total of 899 surrounding black prayer boxes. The monumental structure can house some 25,00 people, but officials demand constant peace and silence no matter the crowd.

  • The Jamia Masjid of Srinagar is situated at Nowhatta in the middle of the Old City. It was built by sultan Sikandar Shah Kashmiri Shahmiri in 1394 AD. under the order of Mir Mohmmad Hamadani, son of Mir Sayyid Ali Hamadani.[1] Sultan Sikhandar's son Zain-ul-abidin extended the Jama Masjid by including turret.
  • This place is very beautiful inner part and as well as outer side of the masjid situated in the down town area of the Srinagar city. The better time to visit in summers at evening hours (4:00 P.M TO 7:00 P.M. ) all working days except Friday because Friday is not suitable for tourists behind any reason. Thanks
  • The mosque is very beautiful and worth a visit.
