When you talk about Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah, it cannot solely be about the Dargah. The Dargah lies in the midst of colourful bazaars, narrow streets, historical Tughlaq & Mughal structures, tombs of yesteryears and so much more. The walk through, the sights, the sounds, the crowds all adds to the experience.
The Dargah of Hazrat Nizamddin itself is a place of worship, a place where you pay your respect to the sufi saint Nizamuddin Auliya, a place that is engulfed with so much faith & belief. Must visit the baoli (stepwell) behind the dargah, which also has an enchanting story attached to it. If you’re lucky you could catch a glimpse of the qawwali (sufi music) at the Dargah.
Here are some tips:
- Wear clothes that cover your arms & legs (otherwise you might have a problem entering the dargah)
- Carry something to cover your head when you enter the dargah, also you will need to take your shoes off before entering (which you can leave with any of the shopkeepers, they keep it safely)
- Plenty of people will approach you asking for money, do not get hassled, they approach everyone esp tourists, its your wish if you want to give them anything but not mandatory
- Before planning your trip to the dargah, check when they sing (you should plan your time around that, normally takes place after sunset)
- The streets are VERY crowded & quite narrow, so mentally prepare yourself before heading out
- As mentioned earlier, the Dargah is surrounded by monuments & tombs, so do walk around & explore
- Good food around, but if you have a sensitive stomach better not to risk it
