Khanqah-e-Naqshbandi is situated in the middle of Khanyar and Nowhatta localities in the Khwaja bazaar of Srinagar. This shrine was founded by Khwaja Khawand Mehmood Naqshbandi in 1433 and an amount of Rs. 45,000 was spent in those days on its construction. This shrine is also known as the Khanqah-e-Faiz Pana also. This place known as Khwaja Bazaar has its name after Khwaja Khawand Mehmood. After the construction of this shrine he proceeded to Lahore from Delhi where he expired in 1640. To look after the shrine and the affairs related to the Jagir, his son Khwaja Moinuddin Naqshbandi came to Kashmir. However when he died in 1674 these affairs were looked after by his wife. After her death her son Khwaja Ashrafuddin and thereafter Khwaja Nizamuddin looked after these affairs. The tombs of all four are at the same place. (image by javeedshah)
