His body was carried by his disciples to Khatlan, Tajikistan, where his shrine is located.Traditionally, Hamadani is regarded as the founder of weaving craft in Kashmir. It is said that he brought with him 700 weavers who taught the craft of making cashmere wool and pashmina to the local population.In 1480, this Shrine was almost ruined in a devastating fire. Sultan Hassan Shah was ruler at that time. He constructed the shrine again in 1493 AD, in a two-storied form.
