It seems like landing at a festival as one goes through the narrow lanes leading to the Dargah- for the first time visitor it could be either fascinating or scary. Once near the shrine it has a spiritual mood and feel with people from all faiths paying their respects to the learned man and also praying. The best part is... More

This was the highlight of our visit to Delhi. We were invited to meet with the priest and he discussed the shrine, introduced us to his son/grandson who will eventually take his place as priests here. We listened to the singers and did offerings with the other pilgrims. To get there was a stroll thru dark, narrow cobblestone alleyways but... More

I went here with some indian friends, and got invited by a priest to stay for lunch. Possibly the best lunch I've had in india, and for sure the best dal. If you get invited do not say no. A great system where anyone can eat for free, so all classes gathered together, regardless of colour. A brilliant advert for... More

It is a place where it is tooo crowded but still the blessings are showered on you if you visit it with clean heart. The place is a bit in the interior of Nizamudin but it is really nice when you reach the Dargah .It is nicely maintained but have to be careful with the touts as they are a... More

Leave aside concerts, leave aside your ipods, laptops, earplugs, leave aside disco/pub music, if you want to have a soulful musical experience, come to Nizamuddin dargah. The place might seem a little over crowded, and a little dirty to your feet, and you might have to struggle to find a place to sit, but once you have spent 10 minutes... More

The destitute have to make money somehow, and the Darga is a good place to shake down pilgrims, I guess. Like many holy places, the darga is socked/barefoot only, but on the day I went, it had been raining, so I got to walk in whatever was washing over the marble tiles. Shoe are forbidden but spitting isn't. The shrine... More

This shrine is in the middle of a bazaar and on the way aggressive shopkeepers will shout at you to leave your shoes with them. Ignore them and proceed until you don't see people wearing shoes anymore - you don't want to go barefoot until you have to, and the place is a bit of a labirinth especially at night,... More

The Heritage and the traditional touch, the fragrance of the flower vendors, the Sufism, the spiritual and the divine blessings all around is good. But the crowd, the beggars in the name of Allah inside the mosque is not so welcome

There is something there , that you will never forget !!! very spiritual but also lots of poor people who needs support, I advise that you should take with you some small bills for beggars, lots of people go there for charity as well, the only bad thing about the place is the over exaggeration of people bending to kiss...
