  • Very beautiful and historic mosque in the heart of Srinagar city. The ambience of this place is soothing. The mosque is in the shape of a square. There is a courtyard with a fountain in the middle of the mosque structure. Both women and men pray here. There is also a market along the entrance of the mosque.
  • Very beautiful inside, on many festive occasions this place is full of crowd especially eid ul adha, Eid ul fitr & in the month of Ramadan especially on Fridays Jamia Masjid is a mosque in Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir, India.

  • Peaceful and calm mosque. An aristocrat architecture. Hari fort is visible from here.
  • Historic Mosque and one of the biggest Mosques in the Valley. Peace of Mind is Garunteed here . A place for the resistance against india
  • This rating is not for the Masjid but for the people who incite violence there in the name of Al Islaam, indulging in blame worthy politics,leading to the distruction of wealth, honour, lives, intellect and the deen.

Where to stay in Srinagar

The moderate climate of Srinagar has made it a popular destination for locals during the summer, hence its good range of accommodations. Hotels basic and luxury, great and small, jostle for position alongside the main waterways, and across from the city's many historic gardens. However, staying on a houseboat on Dal Lake remains the most iconic way to ejoy your Srinagar holiday, with options ranging from budget to high-end. If you don't fancy spending your nights on the water, the palatial scale of the main tourist area makes it one of the more relaxing and popular areas to stay in. More cost-effective accommodations sit on the side streets of the residential districts further to the north.
