About Dastgeer Sahib
Considered to be one of the oldest spiritual places to visit in Srinagar, Dastgeer Sahib happens to be a 200 years old sufi shrine. According to popular beliefs, the shrine was constructed by the philanthropist Mir Husain Qadri back in the year 1845.
The building was expanded by Khwaja Sanaullah Shawl in 1877. Covered with a conventional Khatamband ceiling featuring multiple crystal chandeliers and surrounded by interior walls adorned with papier mache finishing, the surreal features of this shrine hardly had any parallels. However, Dastgeer Sahib was damaged badly in an ugly fire incident that took place in the year 2012. At the present day, the shrine is restored back to its original state and has attractive relics of Sheikh Syed Abdul Qadir Jelani.
