Pathar Masjid is an old mosque that lies along the banks of the Jhelum River in Nowhatta – the historic town in old Srinagar. This mosque was built in 1623, under the supervision of Nur Jahan – the famous Mughal empress.

The name of this mosque is attributed to its unique structure, which is built using stone (pathar), unlike majority of the wooden edifices in the region. It earns recognition due to its fabulous Mughal style of architecture. Nine horizontal arches form the highlight of the Pathar Masjid that impress visitors with their grandeur. Elaborate designs and beautiful structural patterns add to the architectural beauty of this mosque.
