Jame masjid aqsa is located in Miyapatan, very closed from Buddha Gumba towards East, commonly known as the Jame Masjid Al-Aqsa, the oldest and best known mosque in Kaski District of Nepal. According to history, “Miya” is a term given by other communities to local mountainous Muslims, and “Patan” refers to the ground. We may simply conclude from history that Miyapatan refers to Muslim-owned territory. The mosque is beautifully designed with engraved Mihrab, square chambers, mosque halls, the central courtyard, and the capped domes, all of which are carved to perfection and add to the mosque’s architectural magnificence. The azan is beautifully repeated five times a day over the loudspeakers. The mosque is mostly crowded during the festivals such as Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitar and Eid-ul-Adaha, Eid-Milad-un-Nabi, Moharram, Shab-i-Qadar, Shab-i-Barat etc.

There are two ways to follow the cycle lane from the point of masjid aqsa. One direction is to ride towards east uphill for about 5 kilometres (about 45 minutes) to reach the Arba village, then return downhill, crossing the Vijaypur Khola Bridge and heading towards Chittepani, Kalika, Tiger Hill, and the lakes of the Lekhnath area. Another option is to head southeast to the highway, cross the Vijaypur Khola Bridge, and arrive at the army camp area, from where we can ride uphill to reach the Tiger Top.
