Jamia Masjid Dar-ul-Islam

Jamia Masjid Dar-ul- Islam is located in the last village of Dir Kohistan named ‘Thal’    village. This is the oldest and famous mosque of DIR Kohistan located at the river Panjkora bank. The mosque has two floors. The first floor was constructed in 1999 with sheets of metal, while the ground floor was constructed in 186….

The one part of mosque was damaged due to fire in 1953 and rebuilt by the local community. At that time there were no such equipment available to cut the woods. The local community built it by using axes only. They carved on the wood by using axe that we are amused to see.  These carving includes a circle which is worth mentioning. This circle is also carved on different constructions like old building, tombs and stones located in the area from Dir Kohistan to Gilgilt Baltistan and Pameer. It is incorrect perception that this mosque was built by people of Thal. Whereas the this is a mutual construction by the people of Thal, Kalkot, Lamoti and Kohistan and Dir.

There are three big Pillars of wood in the mosque out of which one was set by people of Thal. While other two were settled by people of Lamoti and Kalkot. While placing these pillars of woods many people martyred. There is no restriction of photography and entry of women. Anyone can enter the mosque and can photograph the mosque.
