Shah E Hamdan, Srinagar Overview

Located on the banks of the Jhelum, Shah E Hamdan R.H. Mosque is one of the oldest Islamic sites in Srinagar. Built during the latter half of the 1300s, it is also known as Khanqah-e-Molla. The Shah E Hamdan Mosque was constructed by Shah Sikander in memory of Mir Syed Ali Hamdani, a significant preacher and a Persian scholar.

The mosque attracts devotees to observe the death anniversary of the Mir Syed Ali Hamdani on the sixth day of the Dul-Haj, which is the last month in the Islamic Lunar calendar. This Sufi shrine has been subject to several fire disasters, over the centuries. Nonetheless, it still emits splendid Kashmiri craftsmanship through its intricate wooden carvings. The present-day mosque was revamped and reconstructed by Abu Barkat Khan in 1731.
