Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti, Fatehpur Sikri

(3.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
One of the most highly regarded examples of Mughal architecture in the country, Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti serves as the final resting place of the Sufi saint. Devotees visit the graceful 16th-century tomb to request blessings from the saint, tying a signifying thread to the marble screens that enclose the building so their wishes will not be forgotten. Admire the intricately carved edifice, adorned with arabesques and selections from the Koran, and the plinth's yellow and black mosaics. Note that women will have to wear a scarf on their head to enter, and all visitors must remove their shoes. Wear socks so as not to burn your feet on the sun scorched ground. Put Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti into our Fatehpur Sikri family vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Nice place to visit. But the holy place is made up as footpath market, even inside the premises. Guides from the age of 60 to 10yrs will chase you to hell!! Otherwise a must see location.
  • It's inside Fatehpur Sikri. It is the grave of Sufi Saint Salim Chishti with whose blessings Jahangir was born. A sacred place so please dress properly. You can also see the Buland Darwa which is a World Heritage site. This place is usually hot, so carry your water bottles. Have multiple options to buy local souvenirs.
  • It's inside the fatehpur sikri. Salim Chisti was a sufi saint. Jahangir was born by the blessing of salim chisti.
  • Single storied building of white marbel on the grave of Sufi Saint Salim Chisti. It is one of the best tourist attraction of Fatehpur Sikri.
  • Amazing and beautiful place. Visiting the tomb was a really enjoyable experience. It's a religious place and you might want to purchase something for the worship. Do beware of the scammers. The local salesmen sell overpriced items and prices vary from person to person.
