Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti, Fatehpur Sikri

3.8
#4 of 15 in Things to do in Fatehpur Sikri
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.

  • The tomb of Salim Chisti is located in the complex of Fatehpur Sikri. The white marble building blends the hindu, jain and Islamic architectures. Be careful, because trying to sell offerings at a price above normal.

  • Dargah is a very beautiful place to visit , with its magnificent aesthetic beauty it will steal your heart. The entry to the Dargah is grand. Parking is few miles away from the dargah. You have to walk a little to reach there. On the way to Dargah you will find many guides , some guides are kids and they narate,"short funny hindi shayaris”. The guides donot charge very much , and are fun , they click beautiful photos of you. You can offer chadar at Dargah. There are many gift shops near by. * Be careful while buying chunni that is offered at Dargha * i payed 3000₹ for one chunni*. Later some people told me it was a scam so be carefull at the offerings stalls.
  • Nice religious place. Be extremely careful with scamsters asking to buy shawl to lay over the tomb. Really annoying hawkers all around. Authorities could do a better job of controlling this place.
  • Amazing place wonderful location with nice architecture, the tomb of Salim Chisthi. Devotees come here to worship and seek the blessings at this tomb. It is said that the wishes in the minds of the devotees do get fulfilled for having visited this place of worship.
  • For the believers, ask what you need and He shall provide. A beautiful place with serene energy, and a true example of Indian religious cohesiveness.
  • Dargah is also the part of the great Fatehpur Sikri Monuments which are archeological marvels, the unique structures constructed by the Great Mughal king Akbar. The place is very good for picnic and outings. However the local parking mafia and some miscreants spolis the show. Its a divine's abode a place of great devotion and adoration.
