If you would call Kashmir one of the most beautiful places on Earth, you would picture the lakes and gardens of Srinagar, the flora and slopes of Gulmarg

, and the picturesque and pristine beauty of Pahalgam.

 

Pahalgam is situated at an altitude of 2,133 metres amidst lofty deodars, fir, pine, junipers and many other conifers. The place gets lively during the tourist months of the summer, as well as during the weeks before the Amarnath Yatra, as the base for a big annual pilgrimage to a cave of an ‘ice-lingam’.

There is something about the pure and re-vitalizing air of Pahalgam. Perhaps dense pine and cedar forests make it oxygen rich. Limited accessibility combined with limited telecom connectivity make it an ideal getaway from the grind of daily life and professional stress.

The town is at the junction of the Aru and Sheshnag Rivers and surrounded by soaring, fir-covered mountains with bare, snow-capped peaks rising behind them. The Aru flows down from the Kolahoi glacier beyond Lidderwat while the Sheshnag from glaciers along the great Himalayas.

    I am doing genealogical research and would like to know the names and locations of the Muslim graveyards in Pahalgam and nearby.

    I have searched on the Internet but cannot find information about any such graveyards.

    Can you provide this information or alternatively direct me to the proper authority (and contact information) who has this information?

    Thank you.
