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.

One of the oldest mosques in downtown Srinagar. We couldn't stay for more than 10 min due to its location as our driver feared for our safety. It was exciting and a but scary venturing out to see it.

Don't forget to take picture of those pillars made out of big trees. Few of them are as tall as 7 story.

Nice architecture. I paid Rs 10 for my camera but could not make many pictures, because construction work was on inside.
