Jama Masjid Mosque, Srinagar

4.4
In the heart of the old city lies Jama Masjid Mosque, where thousands of Muslim devotees come to pray. The massive mosque features four towers, three gates, and two 40 m (131 ft) minarets made of sandstone and white marble, all spreading over a surface of 1,200 sq m (12,910 sq ft). Built between 1644 and 1658 by more than 5,000 artisans with Shah Jahan at the helm, the mosque contains intricate carvings on its walls as well as verses from the Koran. Inside, observe the black and white marble floor, which resembles a Muslim prayer mat, and a total of 899 surrounding black prayer boxes. The monumental structure can house some 25,00 people, but officials demand constant peace and silence no matter the crowd.

  • Different and unique architecture We don't see this style of architecture in other masjids in India. It's really special and different. Spread out with large interiors located in the middle of old city. A must visit place.
  • Jamia masjid Srinagar, as the name speaks of itself, is the biggest mosque in Srinagar and probably in the whole valley. "Jamia" word means big or biggest. This mosque is the largest mosque in Srinagar with a capacity of 33,333 persons praying at a single time inside it . Large no.of men and women come here to pray/offer Namaz especially on the day of Friday for Friday Prayers and also on the days of Eid. This mosque has a garden and fountain inside it.
  • Amazing experience... a must visit for all... Soothing ambience...this place is very peaceful... Very well maintained... historical jamia masjid... More than 600 years old... A very good tourist destination also... It got burnt three times... Beautiful architecture...
  • This rating is not for the Masjid but for the people who incite violence there in the name of Al Islaam, indulging in blame worthy politics,leading to the destruction of wealth, honour, lives, intellect and the deen.
  • BeaUtiful religiuos place for muslims.
