Srinagar, Oct 8(ANI): The Archeology and Museum Department of Jammu and Kashmir has found a pond dating back to the Mughal era during renovation work at a historical monument.
The department was carrying out a survey at the Dhara Shikoon Masjid, when the pond was discovered.
"This is an important constituent of the monument as it has remained untouched for a long time. It was hidden under the ground for a long time, but after excavations, it became visible. It was used as an important water source," claimed Khurshid Ahmad Qadri, the Director General of the archives department.
The pond has attracted hundreds of visitors who are impressed by its architecture.
Mir Mehraj-Ud-Din, a local said: "You can't even imagine what all monuments you have here. We have the Pir Mahal. Besides this, there are other monuments which are buried underground." (ANI)
