Aishmuqam

Muslim Shrine in South of Srinagar

This vast, hillside shrine complex is devoted to 15th-century sufi holy man, Zainalabddin Wali. The main section, accessed by a stairway, is within a heavily adorned cave worn smooth by adoring hands. Expect queues on Fridays. The mountain setting looks especially impressive when viewed from the small lane to Daru, 3km further west.

Aishmuqam was a film set for the heartwarming 2015 Bollywood blockbuster Bairangi Baijaan.
