We visited here during an amazing monsoon storm, not realising Friday prayers were about to start, two female western tourists, the only visitors, so a bit of a curiosity. We were treated with quiet courtesy and despite the language barrier helped to do the right things at the right time, which was very important to us as we didn't want... More

Nizamuddin Auliya, one of the most famous Sufi saints has his dargah situated in the midst of the narrow crowded streets of Nizamuddin West. The architecture of the Dargah is superb, the latticed screens around the tomb is a maze of red threads which people have tied to get their wishes fulfilled, reminded me of the Tanot Mandir in Rajasthan....

For a soul satisfying 'spiritual' experience head towards this Darga in South Delhi. Even better would be - a Thursday evening - for the live Qawwali performance. Its quite intimidating to see the crowds thronging the 'galli' (lane) leading to the Dargah, but dont turn back, the place pulls the crowds because so many believe in the 'power', aura of... More

Nizzamudin Mosque is one of my favorite place in Delhi. Shrine of sufi poet, Amir Khusrow and Hazrat Nizzamudin, the mosque has beautiful architecture. The best time to visit in Thursday evening when you can find live qawalli session in progress. Filled with historic tales, the pathway to the mosque also has Galid Academy and Galib's tomb, another poet. Note:... More

I found the Nizzamuddin Basti area one of the most fascinating places I visited in Delhi. The Basti Hzt. Nizamuddin is a12th centaury Muslim village that grew around the shrine to the Sufi saint Hzt. Nizamuddin Auliya. The congested narrow lanes crowded with pilgrims, residents of the area, food stalls, music and animals was quite different to what I have... More

My wife and I consider ourselves something of adventure travelers. We thought that visiting the Nizamuddin Darga would be right up. our alley. We were wrong. The place was absolutely packed with Ramadan worshipers and approximately a dozen westerners. There are signs all over the place that say "PROTECT YOUR VALUABLES - including cell phones, wallets, etc." Boy, they weren't... More

Nothing, absolutely nothing can prepare you for the experience that awaits the chosen few who 'dare' to venture to the Holy Shrine of the revered Saint Nizamuddin. But prepare if you must, then start with Bollywood! A. R. Rahman has sung/composed praise of this Saint in Dilli 6 as well as Rockstar. If you are moved by what Rahman tells... More

It is an interesting place visited by people of different religious backgrounds for paying homage to the buried saint. This place is always crowded and that is why it gets difficult for the management to keep peace and the place well maintained. It is a place with strong history and importance and I would recommend following the codes for this... More

This sacred place has the tomb of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia, iconic sufi saint of North India. Much like during his life time, the place is said to bestow blessings on the visitors and marks completion of their cherished dreams.
