Peer Ki Gali

The word ‘peer’ denotes a person devoted to religion. Situated between the villages of Poshana and Heerpur along the Mughal Road, written records suggest that the place got its name from a saint, named Sheikh Ahmed Karim. The locals still worship him and he is considered as a living saint. The shrine is not the grave of the peer but the place where he meditated. It is said that there are imprints of his hands on a stone slab inside. Apart from this, the area is surrounded by snow-clad mountain peaks which make it a picturesque tourist destination. Locals believe that the saint still comes to help those who call on him. If you are visiting here, then you can take a short detour to the scenic Srinagar as well.
