Hazrat Nizamuddin Darga, New Delhi

3.9
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.

  • A beautiful Sufi shrine visiting which brings peace to the heart. One has to enter through crowded lanes but once inside the main shrine area everything is open and very clean. Entry of women is allowed upto the main gate of the shrine, both men and women have to dress modestly and make use of some sort of headgear such as a scarf and cap. Within the main shrine there is a medieval wooden roof with calligraphy engraved with mother of pearl. Decorations in the rest of the area is very intricate and ornate. Best time to visit would be early morning to avoid the throng of visitors this shrine gets every day.
  • Sarkar Nizamuddin. It's one of Delhiā€™s landmarks. A monument of a pious saint. Visited by thousands of devotees who cut across the barriers of caste, creed and religion and bound by one thread of humanity and peace. Blessed to visit the place. If you need inner peace you should visit the place. Words cannot express feeling of this lovely place.
  • The Shrine is very prominent to devotees. The aura and environment is very serene and soothening to the soul. visitors from different backgrounds and nationalities visit here. Visit the Dargah with proper outfits specially head covered One can place the footwear just before the main entrance of the Dargah. Token will be given to you and you have to pay Rs. 5/ pair of footwear while collecting it back.
  • Beautiful and Holy place. People from all religion came here to show respect. Amazing to see the unity between human being from around the world.
  • A True wish is always accepted here. I have visited there. After going there you will find peace of mind. I will visit soon again.
