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. For Hazrat Nizamuddin Darga and beyond, use our New Delhi road trip planning site to get the most from your New Delhi vacation.

  • Spiritual place with good vibes inside the dargah. Be aware if you are visiting first time, some flower shop people will ask you to keep your shoes at their shop and in return buy flowers and other things from them. They charge good amount if they found you are a first timer. Apart from that dargah is clean and rose smell all around. I have added few videos of Sufi songs by local people. Mesmerizing it was!
  • Divine, ecstatic Spiritual place for people from all religions, castes ,classes and color. On Thursdays program of 'Qawali' (Sufi singing) takes you to another level of consciousness. Once you visit this place it will call you always. A must visiting.
  • The premises is very good. Well known Islamic saint buried here. Mosque is near dargah.
  • MYSTIC PLACE , AND VERY MUCH YOU CAN FEEL POSITIVE VIBRATIONS AS YOU ENTER THIS PLACE, EVERYONE SHOULD VISIT THIS PLACE IF THEY ARE IN SEARCH OF PEACE. JUST VISIT THIS PLACE YOU WILL FIND THE TRUTH.
  • A historically relevant place but not exactly the place for spiritual introspection. Has qawwali on Thursdays and Fridays anytime between 6.30 to 9.30 pm

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
