Pathar Masjid is a historical mosque in the old Srinagar area towards the north of the city. It is a crucial historical monument built centuries ago that is still preserved well for visitors. It is an unconventional structure as far as mosques are concerned. Pathar Masjid does not have the classic pyramid top like you would witness in most other masjids. Instead, it boasts a slanted roof and nine arches with two pillars each.
The front of the mosque is a garden area perfect for brisk strolls. The inside is undoubtedly ideal for praying, and the mosque gets illuminated by beautiful lights in the evening. It is quieter and less populated towards the early and late hours, while the afternoons are the busiest. So it is a must-visit for tourists as the material and architecture are one of a kind. It is also close to multiple other locations in a centrally connected part of the city.
