Place is nice with some decent Sufi decent music. As like other religious places, this place also is home to rude people which must just ruin your visit. Cleanliness is missing.

place is overcrowded and very dirty. the mujawars come after you to donate and keep the money with them. they do not seem to spend anything on the upkeep.they should learn a lesson or two from sikh gurudwaras.

It's what a Durga or shrine is in this subcontinent. Crowds, touts, guides, trinket sellers everywhere. It almost loses the sunctity of the place. But the devotion, belief & intensity of the devotees overwhelms you. The tomb of the saint is in a small enclosure making it difficult for people to walk around--only men allowed. It has an aura that... More

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
