Backing onto Dal Lake several kilometres north of the Old City, Srinagar’s main university area extends around the large, white-domed Hazratbal Mosque. This 20th-century building enshrines Kashmir’s holiest relic, the Moi-e-Muqqadas, supposedly a beard hair of the Prophet Mohammed. The hair’s brief December 1963 disappearance nearly sparked a civil war.
