Sight Seen : Kashmir Magic - Pather Masjid

Srinagar - Pather Masjid

Unlike most typical Kashmiri spired mosques, Pather Masjid is a heavy Mughal structure built by Nur Jahan in 1623. The road-facing side is partly hidden by shop-units but behind, a triple-rank of nine arches opens onto a walled, four-tree chinar garden.

It's worth following the lane directly south, walking beneath the razor-wired guard post to the riverside for views across to Khanqah Shah-i-Hamadan.
