Khanqah-e-Moulla, also called the shrine of Shah-e-Hamdan and Shah-i-Hamdan Mosque, is popular as it was the first ever mosque constructed in Kashmir. Built 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 (the last month of the Islamic Lunar calendar Dul-Haj), on the death anniversary of Mir Syed Ali Hamdani. The shrine bears a wooden structure with marvelously carved roofs, & rich interiors carved with ancient religious sermons and historical inscriptions.

The shrine is reachable by buses or taxis within 20 mins. Tourists can only peak through door as only Muslims are allowed to enter. Some nearby attractions that can also be visited includes Pathar Masjid and Jama Masjid.
To visit and experience Srinagar hassle-free, view srinagar tourism.
