Pathar Mosque

About Pathar Mosque:

Pathar Mosque, known locally as Naev Masheed, is a Mughal era stone mosque located in the old city of Srinagar, in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. Constructed back in 1623 by Noor Jahan, Pathar Mosque is located on Jhelum river’s banks.

The name of this beautiful mosque is inspired by its very own construction that is built mainly of stones. Depicting the magnificent Mughal architecture, this place features spellbinding designs, horizontal arches, and structural patterns. At the present time, the shrine is in its ruins and is mostly visited by archaeologists and history fanatics. It was built by Mughal Empress Noor Jehan, the wife of emperor Jehangir. The mosque has some distinct features that separate it from the rest of the mosques in the Kashmir Valley.
