Khanqah of Shah Hamdan

Khanqah-e-Moulla, also called the shrine of Shah-e-Hamdan, is constructed on the beautiful sandy banks of the Jhelum River in Srinagar. Sultan Sikander built this around 1400 AD in honor of Mir Syed Ali Hamdani, the Muslim saint who popularized Islam in Kashmir. Devotees throng to this shrine on the sixth day of Dul-Haj, as per Islamic Lunar calendar Dul-Haj is the last month, the death anniversary of Mir Syed Ali Hamdani. The shrine bears a wooden structure with marvelously carved roof space and hanging bells. The interior of the mosque is richly carved with ancient religious sermons and historical inscriptions. This is a nice mosque to visit.
