Pathar Masjid

The Pathar Masjid is famous for being the largest surviving Mughal structure in the entirety of Jammu and Kashmir. It is situated on the banks of the Jhelum River at a distance of 6 km from the city. Another mosque nearby is the Shah-e-Hamdan mosque. It is said to have been built by Empress Noor Jahan in 1623 AD. It was supervised by the renowned historian of those days named Malik Hyder Chaudhary.

The notable architectural feature here is the nine horizontal arches. This Mughal shrine is old and in partly in ruins today, but still stands proudly as a testament of Mughal architectural marvel. Today it is of great importance to archeologists.

Going by taxi is the best way.
