We visited this place on our way to Yousmarg. It's a religious site. The interiors are very nice. the woodwork done is very good. Can be visited if you are going towards Yousmarg.

When we were going to Yousmarg from Srinagar, we happen to cross this place. Its a small town and the mosque is in it's center. It's quite a big mosque and very sacred among the people over there. Our driver told us that every year there is one big festival happens and people from all over come and participate.

People go in search of Apple Orchards, Beautiful Valleys and all. Dont understand why this Dargah is being glorified. Found it pretty ordinary place.

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

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.

This Dargah was also in the news for the fact that during extreme insurgency in J&K,... More
