Srinagar, Apr 27 (UNI) A century old house, containing the holy relic of Prophet Mohammad and other taborakat (holy things), discovered on the top of a chinar tree in central Kashmir has become a centre of attraction for the people.

The house was discovered after a group of villagers from Soibug in Badgam district informed Deputy Commissioner, Badgam, Khawaja Farooq Ahmad Renzu about it during a public darbar.

Officials believe that the historic chinar tree itself was more than a century old.

A UNI correspondent who visited the area today saw hundreds of people visiting the place to have a glimpse of the house.

Located on top of the tree, the wooden chamber with valuable archeological records was still in good shape and has centre of attraction for people who are thronging to see it.

Adjacent to the tree is the grave of Syed Mohammad Syed Hussain, a religious leader of the area who was looking after the house and tree.

Now the Hakani family is looking after the house, which also houses holy relic of Prophet Mohammad, Sufi Saint-- Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jeelani and 12 other tabarokats (holy things), claimed Tanveer Ahmad Hakani.

He said the holy taborakats had full authenticity with proof.

Mr Renzu visited the spot along with officers of Archaeological department and went inside the house to review the monument.

He directed the officers to take all possible measures for preservation of this heritage.
