Jama Masjid (Kashmir)

Jama Masjid Kashmir

The imposing structure of Srinagar's largest mosque, the Jama Masjid or Friday Mosque, is one of the earliest examples of Islamic wood architecture. First built in AD 1398, it was successively destroyed by fires and rebuilt thrice. The present building conforms to the original plan. Unlike the Islamic shrines, the Jama Masjid & other Muslim shrines in Kashmir are not topped by a dome. Instead four spires tower above the surrounding rooflines. Each of mosque's massive walls are pierced by an enormous doorway below its corresponding spire. Four lofty prayer halls are surrounded by 370 pillars, each the size of the deodar tree. The sunlit central courtyard with its pool of water contrasts masterfully with the somber serenity of the four pillared prayer halls.
