Shiekh Noor-ud-din (Aishmuqam)
Aishmuqam Shrine is one of the most prominent tourist spots in Anantnag, which was built in the 15th century A.D. This shrine was constructed in the honor of Shiekh Zain-ud-din, who was one of the chief disciples of the renowned Reshi, Shiekh Noor-ud-din. The hills in the Aishmuqam town were once home to Hazrat Zain ud din Wali. Therefore, this place is considered to be sacred by people belonging to different religions.
According to popular belief, Hazrat Zain ud din Wali had spent his time preaching about Allah. For this purpose, Hazrat Zain ud Din Wali decided to restrict himself to the cave. Aishmuqam shrine is thronged by thousands of devotees during the annual Urs and Zool festival from all over the world.
Baba Zain- ud- din Reshi, more popularly known as Sakhi- Zain- udin of Ashmuqam, is the most celebrated Reshi Saint of this land, who lived in the 15th century AD. He is one of the founder saints of the Reshi order in Kashmir and is remembered for his open handiness and generosity (Sakhawat) for centuries together.
