Shopian is a historical town that has grown in prominence since the Mughal era. It was once called as ‘Sheen-e-Van,’ which means ‘snow forest.’ From 1872 until 1892 A.D., Shopian was one of six Wazarat headquarters in Kashmir.

The district is located in the foothills of the Pirpanchal range, and the most of its land is hilly. The district covers 30,741.6 hectares of land. It is 51 kilometres from the city of Srinagar. Shopian is an old town in Kashmir that, among other things, has historical significance since it is located on the ancient imperial road known as the Mughal Road.

Imam Shah-i-Hamadan had the honour of entering the Kashmir valley through Shopian to disseminate the word of Islam. At Khankah Pinjoora, the region enjoys the honour of housing the “Holy Relic” of Prophet Mohammad (SAW).
