Surrounded by lush green mountains, the city of Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-administered Kashmir, looks like a mini-Turkish metropolis Istanbul. Dotted by pencil minarets and flat domes, the imprints of Turkish liberal aid that helped to rebuild the city, post-2005 devastated earthquake, is quite visible. Off late, an Ottoman-style mosque has emerged, one of the startling features of the landscape of this tiny city, located at the confluence of the Jhelum and Neelam rivers and housing a population of 150,000. Just 64 kilometers (40 miles) away from the Line of Control (LoC) that divides Jammu and Kashmir between India and Pakistan, the city was the epicenter of the 2005 earthquake, which had a magnitude of 7.6. The earthquake destroyed about 50% of the buildings in the city and killed around 80,000 people in the region. Fourteen years later, the glory of the city has been restored. With clean roads and good infrastructure in the foothills of snow-capped mountains, it has now emerged as a major tourist destination. All roads in the city lead to a central square, housing Osmania Masjid, built in front of the official residence of the prime minister of Pakistan-administered Kashmir, also known as Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK). Other government buildings like president house and legislative assembly radiate from the Turkish style mosque.
