Khanqah-e-Moula also known as Shah-e-Hamadan Masjid and Khanqah, is a mosque located in the old city of Srinagar, on the banks of the river Jhelum between the Fateh Kadal and Zaina Kadal bridges. It is held to be the first Khanqah—mosques associated with specific saints—in the Kashmir valley. The Khanqah is a wooden structure whose chief aesthetic feature is its beautifully carved eaves and hanging bells. The interiors are richly carved and painted, and the antique chandeliers give it an air of opulence. Ancient historical documents and religious discourses are etched on the shrine's interior walls.
From History Pages
One of the oldest Muslim shrines in Kashmir, was first built in 1395 CE, by Sultan Sikendar in the memory of Mir Sayed Ali Hamadani who preached Islam in Kashmir. The shrine gains a special significance on 6th of Zilhaj (last month of Muslim calendar), the death anniversary of Mir Sayed Ali Hamadani. On this day, devotees visit the shrine in large numbers to pay a tribute to Shah Hamadan.
The Khanqah of Shah Hamadan in Kashmir has undergone ruination a couple of times. The year 1480 saw the shrine being ruined in a devastating fire. Later, the shrine was reconstructed and restored by the then ruler Sultan Hassan Shah. Again, in 1493 AD, Khanqah-e-Moula was demolished and reconstructed in two-stories. On 15 November 2017, a fire broke out in the shrine which damaged the spire of the building. Restoration work was immediately started and on 30 March 2018, a refurbished crown was successfully installed on the spire of the shrine
