Tomb and mosque of Sheikh Immamuddin

  • Description:

    The Tomb and mosque of Sheikh Immamuddin is a historical and cultural site in Peshawar, Pakistan. It was built in the 17th century by the disciples of Sheikh Immamuddin, a local religious leader and a descendant of Akhund Darweza Baba, a famous Sufi saint. The site consists of a three-domed mosque and a four-storeyed tomb, both decorated with geometric and floral patterns, as well as Quranic inscriptions. The site is a fine example of the Mughal architecture and art, and reflects the influence of various cultures, such as Greek, Scythian, Parthian, Kushan, and Gupta, that interacted in the region. The site is also a place of worship and reverence for the people of Peshawar, especially the Khalil tribe, who consider Sheikh Immamuddin as one of their forefathers. The site is one of the 85 sites in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa that are under the protection of the Federal Government¹.
