Masjid of Akhund Mullah is a small mosque that lies below the shrine of Makhdoom Sahib in Srinagar. Many regard it as a mosque inside another mosque as the sanctum is present in a sprawling courtyard that surrounds the main building. Dara Shikoh – the eldest son and heir of Shah Jahan – constructed this shrine in remembrance of his teacher Akhun Mulla Shah.

It is built using grey limestone, which has a glossy texture that looks beautiful. A stone lotus with inscription adorns the podium of this Islamic shrine. The inscription dates back to 1649, which was the era of the Mughal Sultanate in the valley. The special prayer chamber is one of the highlights of this mosque.
