A very small town but the dargah - e - sharif is a very good place to visit in the town. Plan to visit charar-e-sharif not only for Holy Shrine but the natural beauty while travelling from srinagar to Charar-e-Sharief will automatically ask you to take your camera out of the bag. Enjoy the trip !

It is not a tourist place. But if you are going to Yousmarg, worth spending few mins. Beautiful structure. There are so called priests who will tell you stories and expect you to pay something based on your city :)

Not exactly a tourist place but worth a visit. It is a holy Shire on the way to Yusmarg. Very different structure than other mosque and Shrines. One can click photos in the premises (and not inside the Shrine). It's a divine experience once inside the Shrine. People from all faith visit this Shrine and make their wishes.

The moment you say "Mumbai"; the word spreads internally. And then you have to keep giving minimum 50 Rs donation to every priest who... More
