About Hazratbal

The Hazratbal Shrine, the Muslim shrine in Srinagar is believed to be housing a relic, the Moi-e-Muqqadas. That is what many Muslims of Kashmir believe to be a hair of Prophet Muhammad. During religious occasions, the special relic is displayed for the public and most occasions are teamed with a fair. Other than the social events, regular Friday prayers are offered at Hazratbal which hundreds of Muslims attend. Another special feature that makes Hazratbal special is its dome shaped roof because mostly in Srinagar the mosques and shrines are shaped on the lines of a pagoda. The view from this shrine is spectacular, as it overlooks the Dal Lake on one side and Nishat Baug on the other with mountains view on the others. This shrine is said to be built during the early seventeenth century when Sadiq Khan, one of Shahjahan’s Subedars laid out a garden and constructed a palatial pleasure house in Srinagar in 1623, called Ishrat Mahal. When the emperor visited the place during 1634, he ordered the building to be converted into a prayer ground or mosque with certain alterations. It was during Aurangzeb’s time that Moi-e-Muqqadus or the holy relic stored here currently arrived in Kashmir and was placed in the shrine, Naqashbad Sahib. Since there was not enough place to accommodate a huge crowd, it was shifted to Hazratbal which that time was known as Sadiqabad.
