the architecture is different from other places and has indeed a secular outside look to it. Reminded me of Buddhist influence. So, very different in structure, it must be seen

one of the oldest structures in Srinagar, the masjid has large prayers halls with supports of gigantic pines. Spacious courtyard has fountains and gardens. The outside market is a good place to sit a see the local life go by.

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

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.
