Hazrat Nizamuddin

Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah, is a tomb dedicated to Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, the world famous Sufi saint, considered the fifth greatest of the saints in the Chishti order. Born 1238 A.D., he believed that love was the true means of understanding God and was known for his secular thoughts and kindness towards everyone. He had 600 khalifas, or disciples who spread his teachings around the world. He passed away on 3rd April, 1325, and his remains were enshrined inside the Dargah. The building itself is a square, domed structure flanked by verandahs and openings made up of arches. The dome is marked by stripes of black marble and bears a lotus crest on top. The tombs of Nizamuddin’s disciples, the famed poet Amir Khusro and the Mughal princess Jahanara, daughter of Shah Jahan can also be found within the Dargah.

The Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah is visited by thousands of Muslims every week, as well as Hindus, Christians and people from other religions. Anyone can find meaning in the saint’s teachings, and this shows in the number people who come to see it. It becomes especially popular twice a year when the Urs of Nizamuddin and Amir Khusro are celebrated.

Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah can be found in Nizamuddin West in Delhi and can be reached via auto rickshaw or bus.
