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.

Poorly maintained. Not al at all charming as compared to pictures. Various people sitting there only to take money from you in the name of donations! Look at it from the outside. Take a few pictures and exit!
