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!

This is a very peaceful and spiritual place. AS soon as you enter the main gate of the masjid you are filled with a sense of overwhelming joy and awe.

The entire architecture of the Masjid is very different from the usual Masjid architecture. This one is built in some what Pagoda style. The views are great. And there is no restriction for any body inside the Masjid.

Located in downtown Srinagar in the middle of the city is magnificent. The stylish wooden pillars adds to the beauty of the architecture. It’s a huge mosque which can accommodate 35000people for prayers. It’s very peaceful inside and has a small garden with the fountain besides.
