Hazrat Nizamuddin Darga, New Delhi

4.1
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.

  • this is one of my favorite dargah in India. Every time i visit delhi i go to this place. very peaceful. i love the qawalli in the evening.  more »
  • Seeing Rockstar movie made me want to meet this place, and hear the Qawwali. It was worth it, on a Thursday night.  more »
  • Extremely crowded and congested, this can seem claustrophobic if you are not prepared for it. However, amazingly historical and has the essence of Delhi.  more »

  • A very calming and soothing place amidst the hustle bustle of Delhi. The mosque allows entry of everybody with a pious soul. It is not necessary to wear a white cap (if you don't have). It gets busier during the evening and holy month of Ramadan. Walking through the streets would lead you to Dargah. Do not miss the Sufi Qawalli and the Vegetarian food served inside the Dargah.
  • Very captivating to listen to the evening prayer session around sunset at this mosque. Be prepared to take your shoes off before going in, but note that there is no need to wear a white cap despite the many people trying to sell you one. It takes some meandering they narrow hallways crowded with people to actually reach the mosque but it's a cool experience nonetheless.
  • They insists you to open shoes earlier. Open shoes after reaching main gate. Sit few minutes it will be very calm and peaceful experience.
  • I have visited Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah last year, one of the best place to visit in Delhi. Qawwali take place on every Thursday and Saturday. Must visit at least onceā€¦
  • As we all known Delhi is culturally rich and during 10-18 centuries Islam grown here with their Islamic rulers. Hazrat is also belongs from that era.

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.
