Charar-e-Sharief is located on the way to Yousmarg while going from Srinagar. It is considered to be one of the most ancient shrines in the valley of Jammu & Kashmir. Once you get here you will be mesmerized by the sanctity of this place. Inheriting a 600-year old heritage, this historic shrine attracts a huge number of devotees.
Charar-i-Sharief was idealised and built to pay homage to one of the holy saints of Sufism – Sheikh Noor-ud-Din Noorani, who is regarded as the patron saint of Kashmiris. Known as Sahajanand or Nund Reshi, he propounded the significance of Rishism in the valley of Jammu & Kashmir centuries ago. Since then it has been an important part of the culture of this place.
