about hazratbal shrine

A dazzingly white structure on the far bank of the Dal, Hazratbal Shrine houses a relic that is believed to be Prophet Mohammed’s hair. It can be reached by a shikara on the Dal Lake or by road through the city.

Hazratbal Shrine is important because it holds a sacred relic, a hair, of Prophet Muhammad, referred to as the Moi-e- Muqqadas. The story goes that the hair was brought to Bijapur by a descendant of the Prophet; his descendants — fallen on hard times — sold it to a Kashmiri businessman, Nurud- Din Eshai. Aurangzeb then seized it and sent it to the Ajmer Dargah but later restored it to the owner. The Moi-e- Muqqadas reached Kashmir in 1700 where Eshai’s daughter, Inayat Begum, built this shrine to house it.
