About Jamia Masjid Srinagar

Jamia Masjid of Srinagar is a significant religious edifice, situated in the heart of the city's old part. This mosque was constructed in AD 1400, under the patronage of Sultan Sikandar. Years later, his son Zain-ul-Abidin carried out the renovation and extension of the mosque. It witnessed several natural disasters and other calamities, but was renovated every time something happened. Maharaja Pratap Singh undertook the last renovation of this mosque, which stands majestically at present. This mosque presents a fine example of Indo-Saracenic architecture, which is a blend of Indian and Mughal styles. The impressive structure of this shrine consists of 370 wooden pillars that speak of architectural excellence.

A square-shaped garden lies in the centre of this mosque that can be used as a prayer space. Over 33,333 people can offer prayer at a time in this mosque.
