Kasmir - Srinagar - Rozabal Tomb
Roza Bal is the name of a shrine located in the Khanyar district of Srinagar, in Kashmir, India, venerated by some Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists. Some people identify the sage buried there with one Yuz Asaf, that is Jesus of Nazareth, whom they allege to have arrived in Kashmir after surviving his crucifixion.
The tomb has gained increasing popularity as the potential tomb of Jesus. Historically, however, the Holy Sepulchre is considered by Christians as the tomb of Christ. The tomb itself consists of a low rectangular building on a raised platform, surrounded by railings at the front. It has three arches at the front, where entry can be had, and four arches at the side. Inside is a rock carving that is said to show feet bearing crucifixion wounds. The body is buried according to the Jewish tradition of directions and not according to the Islamic tradition. However, the building also houses the burial tomb of a local Muslim saint, Mir Sayyid Naseeruddin, who was buried in line with Islamic directions.
The tomb was previously maintained by local descendants of the buried sage. It is currently maintained by a Board of Directors consisting of Sunni Muslims. Sahibzada Basharat Saleem, a former caretaker (now deceased), claimed to hold genealogical tables that showed he was a direct descendant of the buried sage. The BBC first televised a documentary that included a section on the story of Yuz Asaf titled "Did Jesus Die?"
