No offence to anyone but this is a normal place of worship for the locals. True, they believe that praying here answers prayers etc but as a tourist location, i didnt find anything out of the ordinary. The architecture is good, the ambiance inside the mosque is good but that's that. Not missing anything much of you dont visit here... More

I was taken in by how beautiful the structure is and wished I had more time to view it but there was no time. The building was very impressive

The most unique mosque in the world , its a wonder for Architecture lovers, just can't imagine the amount of variety we have in this country. don't miss the wooden pillars inside the mosque complex. Try to visit in the morning you will find the place almost to yourself.

It's centrally located in Srinagar and a visit to Srinagar would be incomplete without a visit to the biggest Mosque of the city. Ladies are allowed, but only with their heads covered, so it would make sense to carry a scarf/stole along. The area can get get very crowded on Fridays, but other days are relatively quieter.

This impressive mosque covers a decent expanse of land. 4 towers and open halls where people can pray or just relax. Gets very busy on Fridays during Ramadan but still a friendly atmosphere. Plenty of interesting retail activity going on around the mosque.
