History

Sheikh Zain-ud-din : Aishmuqam Village Aishmuqam is very well known in every part of Kashmir on account of the historical shrine of Sheikh Zain-ud-din, who lived in the 15th century A.D. and was one of the principal disciples of Sheikh Nur-ud-din, the leading Reshi of Kashmir. It is commonly known in Kashmir that Sheikh Zain-ud-din, who was known by the name of Zia Singh before his conversion, was a prince and belonged to the ruling Rajas of Kishtwar. Among the local inhabitants, legend has it that Zain-ud-din meditated for a long time in the village Mandjan of Tehsil Sopore, where he attained spiritual perfection. It was at this stage that Sheikh Nur-ud-din advised him to migrate to the cave at Aishmuqam and to meditate there for the remaining period of his life.
