I went inside the mosque and was told non muslims are not allowed inside. The caretaker inside the mosque who told me this said he will however make an exception and shook my hand. He then requested if I can offer some money as he distributes money among the poor and he asked for Rs 200. I offered him 50 and walked away.
Thinking back, I should have given this money to the donation box. When I went back to the car, my muslim driver told me this is not true and non muslims are allowed inside.
I have gone through the reviews and it seems it is true non muslims are not allowed inside. It is best to respect peoples sentiments, hence its best for non muslims to not go inside
and if you wish to donate anything just put the money in the donation box.

As we are not Muslim, we were allowed to peek inside through a window. Very nice decorations inside. Could not see much though so it was a disappointing trip. OK if you are in the area for something else, otherwise skippable.

I asked my Kashmiri Muslim driver whether there were any restrictions. He said only for women. Inside I experienced the atmosphere for a few moments . As I was leaving a man sitting there snapped his fingers and jerked his hand in a sign pointing to the door which clearly meant get out, in the rudest possible way . Then he kept snapping his fingers and making the same gesture . Startled I asked him what with my hand . I asked my driver to come back with me and talk to the man . But he enquired from several people outside and was told that non Muslims were not allowed inside .
The mosque has a unique look and feel about it - quite different from the Jama masjid and the many other mosques I have visited all over . There is no courtyard for one thing . The facade is special and transports one to the Arab world - the wood is typical of Kashmir . Inside it felt mediaeval . It is in the crowded bye lanes of the Old City .

This place is mostly important because of its history than architectural points. The Shah Hamdan was a famous islamic messenger in Kashmir.

A very nice mosque. Originally 700 years old but the current structure dates from 18th century. Extensively decorated externally and brightly lit inside with huge chandeliers. A welcoming friendly mosque, no photo-graphs when inside the mosque which is fine but they will point to a side window where you can take photographs of the interior.

Shah-e-Hamadan Masjid was first built in 1395 AD in the memory of Mir Sayyid Ali Hamadani who brought Islam to Kashmir. The present structure is wooden and decorated with ornate chandeliers and paper machine embellishments.

Unique place, full of history and antiquity. The river flowing at the back was interesting and architecture is so unique to Kashmir. A must visit place in Srinagar.

This Khanqah is located in downtown by the Jhelum. Intricate interiors with detailed work. For Hindu's go down to the Jhelum and pray at the Vermilon Wall which is also visible from the iron gates (which are likely to be closed) This is the spot where an old Kali Temple was located prior to it being demolished.

This is a lovely mosque in the old town of Srinagar. This doesn't form a part of the itinerary of tourist packages. But we took a walking tour with Kashmir walks which gave us an opportunity to learn about this monument. This is built in centuries ago and combines the architectural styles of Hinduism, Islam and Buddhism. A must see monument for those interested in history and culture.
