We reached Charar-e-Sharif late in the evening on a cold wintry night and maybe that was the reason why it was secluded. We could sit in peace and soak in the opulence and the divinity of the place. Wonderfully crafted in walnut wood with massive chandeliers. Worth visiting

Weather was wonderful. Garden's in Srinagar were full of Marigolds & Dahlias. Place to stay Comrade Inn was very nice. Welcome hotel was okay in Gul marg. The best part was Mr. Uzair of Uzair Travels. We had hired two Innova Cars. Mr uzair was himself driving us all around. My full marks to him. He made us drive to... More

Visit this along with Yusmarg and your day is complete. There are apple plantations all along the way till Yusmarg. If you visit in September (spring season) you are sure to see tress loaded with red apples.....the best in India

On the way to Yousmarg (YUSMARG) from Srinagar or during return, you must stop at "Charare-i-Sharief" Dargah. Beauty of this place is the ancient architecture, wooden carvings, Persian carpets and a huge prayer hall that surrounds the Graves in the middle of the Dargah. This Dargah was also in the news for the fact that during extreme insurgency in J&K,... More

This has been one of my favorite shrines to visit since childhood. It's a little far away (about 30 km) from the main city, but for tourists especially going to Yousmarg, and inclined towards sufism, it may be well worth the stop. The drive to the shrine is picturesque, and in the right season, one can see many poppy fields... More

I along with my family had visited Charar-e-Shariff during our visit to Yusmarg. We had gone to this dargah on 18th April 2015. It is around 30 kms from Srinagar. It is considered as one of the most sacrosanct Muslim shrines in India. The Shrine of Charar-i-Sharief is approximately 600 years old. The shrine was built to commemorate Sheikh Noor-ud-Din... More
