Tomb of Sheikh Noor-ud-din-Noorani

Tomb of Sheikh Noor-ud-din Noorani, popularly known as Alamdar-e-Kashmir (flag-bearer of Kashmir), is situated at Chrar-e-Sharif, 28 km south-west of Srinagar, in Jammu and Kashmir. The shrine on the burial site was constructed by Zain ul Abideen, the then ruler of Kashmir.

Sheikh Noor-ud-din traveled throughout Kashmir to spread the message of his religion. The shrine along with Khanqah was gutted in a fire in 1995. A new shrine is planned to be constructed in its place.
