Hazrat Nizamuddin Darga, New Delhi

(4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Hazrat Nizamuddin Darga at the forefront of your travel plans using our New Delhi trip builder.

  • We visited the Nizamuddin Dargah in December as part of History Walk. To be noted: they don't allow photography (And, don't try to be sneaky and do it anyway; they take offence), the place is super cr...  more »
  • This is a part of the Muslim quarter of Delhi. As you enter seems to be in another world: hundreds of people jostle and push themselves to get ahead of this mausoleum Arabic; en route there are a lot of homeless and sick people who do not have a beautiful appearance, but they're harmless. Attention to the crowd, it's really great! It was a great experience because as you can imagine there are many tourists (we were the only "whites") and you can immerse in one of the world's most fascinating cultures, namely the Arab one.

  • The entrance is from within a noisy, crowded and poor neighborhood. Folks will insist on selling you flowers and other things for making an offering. Once inside you will see that most visitors are no...  more »

  • The intricacy of the architecture and the art on the walls is very beautiful. I went hoping to witness the famed qawwals but unfortunately I happened to visit during Muharram, during which time of the year, they don't perform. I wish the people who were in charge of the place were kinder and treated others with respect.
  • Hazrat nizam Uddin awlia majar.
  • I only visit there to see auliya sahab dargah.....and went there many times...but only thing i hate the people who make that holy place worst....the street stall people who screaming and taunt u to place ur shoes in there shops buy flowers from them...if u ignore them they screamed and most cases they hold ur hand.....they are more iliterate persons who so called themselves society members...fraud people lives there....rude behaviour even outside of mazaar....i don't why these intolerant iliterate people exists there...they should removed from there.....in contrast u go mehrauli dargah u will see so positive people there instead of these people.....sadly to say this all but only i love to go there to visit and give respect to hazrat nizamuddin auliya sahab and amir khusro saheb grave those people who called these place shirk they are deobandi's but that's okay most people don't have faith everyone has different views towards religion and in religion...i believe allah and i respect the people who is connected to him....we do dua to them and they sent it to allah this what i believe those people called them shirk if u don't know anything don't give a damn hatred word about them....respect equally but worship allah...iblees ki tarah mat socho warna sara ibadat abtak jo zindagi mein kiya gaarat mein chala jaayega....it gives ur soul free from spirits people making dua and their dua also fulfilled only to visit there to give respect them and getting more experience
  • Dil ko shanti our sukoon yahi pe Mila.
  • Most Amazing Place in Delhi. The Qwali by Sufi Qawaals is soothing and gives peace to You. If You are lucky enough, You might hear Kun Faya Kun live from the Nizami brothers who sang in Rockstar. Best day to visit is Thursday and From Friday to Sunday. Finding parking for car is challenging. It's a 20 min distance from Jor Bagh metro station.
