Hazrat Nizamuddin Darga, New Delhi

4.0
Jostle through the shop-packed alleys until you reach Hazrat Nizamuddin Darga, a serene 700-year-old mausoleum of one of the world's most famous Sufi saints, Nizamuddin Auliya. Visited by thousands of Muslims every week, the complex also holds the tombs of poet Amir Khusrow, Nizamuddin's contemporary, and of a 17th-century Mughal princess, Jahanara Begum Sahib. Observe worshippers pray to Mezar, listen to centuries-old qawwali (devotional music), and admire the intricate stone lattice and Farsi inscriptions. In the evening, candles illuminate the dargah. After your visit, explore the many good eateries in the area--but be aware of pickpockets.

  • Thursday is the day the Dargah is thriving with people. Most of the famous qawwals perform their art on Thursday and it is a really good experience to be there when that happens.  more »

  • A vibrant place to say the least. We were there on a normal night. By normal I mean not a Thursday night when there is a bigger arrangement. We had to take our shoes off. Sat there and listened to the songs. The heartfelt music and the people made the environment heart touching. This was a very tender experience.
  • It does not show the real face of Islamic culture and art. Most of the grave keepers will try to advantage of tourists and sight seekers. But, its a good for a change of routine. To learn and see something new in Delhi. Advise to all visiters be on your gaurd. Enjoy.
  • Really a great place to visit, at least once. Better if you go with a person who has visited the place earlier, as you might get lost a bit into these tiny, cramped streets. The lanes have got many non-veg restaurants, and at entrance of dargah you will find shops selling the things which are offered at dargah. Make sure they try to sell you everything that is to be offered, and the prices of the things are at their mercy. Hence it would be better if you having someone with you who has visited this place earlier. Although I don't want to be harsh but still be prepared for anything as you might encounter some unknown and unlikely people there. Note: If you're visiting this place all alone for the very first time just make everyone else feel that you are a regular there.
  • Amazing place...its like all loads and tension gone after visiting here. A very peaceful. And don't choose this place for visit purpose. It's dargarh. Here u can heal ur pain and it's very relieving place.
  • Very peaceful. Wanna be there again. Tranquil, unruffled and soothing place. The aroma of this place in indescribable. Sufi music, non veg food and free place to sleep.
