ZIYARAT SHARIEF SHEIKH UL AALAM (RA) CHIMMER
Sheikh-Ul-Alam (RA) was born and brought up in Qaimoh. He had spent most of his life in Qaimoh. At the age of 30, he left for his home & retired to caves for meditation. The cave is located in a small village Guffabal of Tehsil Qaimoh and is about 15 feet deep. The place is visited by pilgrims to the present day.
Sheikh ul Aalam (RA) may well be considered the patron saint of Kulgam. Immortalized by his verses that reflect the syncretic Sufi-Reshi tradition of Kashmir, he holds a venerated place among the saints who have shaped the culture and ethos of the land.
Chimmer in Kulgam, where he spent several years, has an Astan (Shrine) devoted to him that reverberates with peace and piety. Though modest in its exterior, it pays homage to his life philosophy and the tranquility one feels here is unmatched.
