Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti, Fatehpur Sikri

(240+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • Maintained very well to this date thanks to the archeological survey of India. All religions are allowed to enter and offer prayers.
  • Serenity at Salim Chishti's Dargah. Your wishes come true here. Have faith.
  • 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.
  • Peaceful place dargah of saint salim chisty
  • The guides here started their rates from Rs.800 .Refusing all the guides we started walking up(the car is parked at a little distance).Finally a kid of about 10 offered us a tour in Rs.20 and we gladly hired him.However he took us to the people selling flowers and sheets who try to emotional blackmail people into buying their products . The place does'nt have much to offer given the distance and time it takes from Agra. You can skip it if need be.
