Jamia Masjid, An Architectural Marvel in Old Srinagar

The Jamia Masjid of Srinagar, a hugely sacred mosque and place of worship for Kashmiri Muslims, is a beautiful specimen of Persian architecture, with a few influences from Buddhist pagodas. There has been generous usage of Kashmiri glazed black stone, bricks and deodar wood in the building of the mosque, which gives it a quaint, charming look. Our first glance of the mosque stunned us with its prettiness.

Step out of the mosque gates, and you will find yourself amidst a little bazaar of sorts. Walking around these shops, checking out things, photographing, learning and shopping was a treat in itself.
