Tomb of Sheikh Noor-ud-Din, located 28 km from Srinagar at Chrar-e-Sharif, is popular as Alamdar-e-Kashmir or the flag-bearer of Kashmir. It is dedicated to Sheikh Noor-ud-din Noorani (RA) who spread the religious message of Islam in the valley of Kashmir. Coins were issued in his name after his death by Atta Mohammad Khan, the governor of Afghan.
Sangram Dar, who was a disciple of Alamdar-e-Kashmir, constructed a mosque here. Sheikh Noor-ud-din Noorani would pray every Friday in this mosque only. Legend has it that after Alamdar-e-Kashmir died, his coffin descended at this site after flying for sometime.
