Location: Srinagar, Kashmir Region, J&K
Architectural Style: Persian



One of the east banks of the Jhelum River, between the Zaina Kadal and the Ali Kadal, is the slightly decrepit tomb of King Zain-ul-Abidin, the highly regarded son of Sultan Sikander, who built the Jami Masjid.

The tomb, built on the foundations of an earlier temple, show a clear Persian influence in its domed construction and glazed tiles. Mounded bricks can also be found at intervals in the exterior walls. In the enclosures are fragments of inscriptions, the oldest in Kashmir in Pali characters. Over the posterior gate is an inscription in Persian.
