In the middle of narrow alleys, this is the tomb of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia, great Sufi Saint of 13th century. This is a holi place for Muslims and one has to leave the shoes outside and cover his head to enter the shrine. There is no fixed place to keep your shoes and the shop that you buy flower basket would also keep your shoes. Beware of middle man and there is lot of bargaining. The place is purely a religious place and does not provide any information board for the visitors. There is also the tomb of Amir Khusro in the same premises, famous poet of 12the century India, who was disciple of Hazrat Nizamuddin. As the custom is, one has to visit dargah of Amir Khusro first then the dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin. Just beside the Dargah, there is a Mosque to offer Namaz (Prayers). Qawwalis are also sung in the Dargah every day.

Hazrat nizamuddin aulia dargah is one of the peaceful places ever. A person feels the vibe there and peace of mind. All the stress is releaved and vanished. The evenings are filled with prayers and qoires, the ambinece is out of the world. The scented fowers are a attracted spot. Must visit place.

We tried to walk here from Humayun's Tomb and let me tell you...the entrance is NOT easy to find...we walked past it a few times and I am pretty seasoned with getting around by myself. This is the rare occasion were I recommend that you get an auto-rickshaw from the metro to take you directly there.

Absolutely a safe place for women, no one is there to harm anyone as there is a separate place to them to be at dargah in parda (not directly visible to the mazaar) but yet close enough to pray and experience the divinity of the place. At the entry some shopkeepers will approach you to buy offerings like chadar rose petals, essences from yet and also for the safe keeping of your footwear but it totally upto you if you respond to them or not. Go there sit, visit dargah walk freely and simply ignore-respectfully (if you wish) when you are asked for donations etc. Muslim, sikh, hindus and even christians visit this holy place for taking blessings and get rid of unwanted spiritual/worldly loads and troubles.

This dargah it’s just a place of worship. It’s a place where you forget all your worries and submit to yourself to the Sufi Kalam and aura that surround the place .if in delhi it is a quintessential to visit this on a qwaali night listening to those Sufi singer heal your soul..
It’s my third time here… will go again if ever I visit delhi

Interesting working temple/shrine. Difficult to navigate through a crowded market to get to. You will need head covering and to leave shoes and socks at the entrance. Crowded with beggars which is difficult to see. Start by buying plates of flower pedals and incense to give as offerings.

When we made it to the shrine a local spotted us (not hard to notice two Americans looking confused) and explained the process of making our offerings at two different tombs. Then asked for a donation which seemed to go to the shrine. Definitely stay around afterwards to just watch everything happening.

The Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah is a islamic shrine to the Sufi saint, Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliya. Very popular and commercial. The dargah is accessible from a warren of streets lined with vendors trying to sell you shrine offerings and insisting you have to take your shoes off and leave it with them. Just ignore them, I took my shoes off and carried it with me. The building of the shrine does look nice and is very similar to other Mughal era dargahs, but other than that this is one for the faithful, me thinks.

I'll start off by admitting my review will be a bit biased as my iPhone was stolen while literally in the shrine around the tomb. The place I was most excited to visit in Delhi turned out to be the least pleasant. I attend charity events regularly with Sufis in Boston and sometimes their meditations/majlis. But unlike with those wonderful kind Sufis, this place was not so pleasant. Lots of dirty looks. Nonstop pushing and shoving and my mom wasn't even allowed to view the shrine. Men only. While being pushed around the tomb someone managed to pickpocket my iPhone out of my zipped up zipper pocket. With all the pushing though you wouldn't notice if someone punched you in the stomach so I should have been much more careful. Also they pressure you quite a lot to make a donation, which is ok because in my guide book they say the people inside are legit and put the money to whatever you choose (school, poor, etc.) Anyway I wouldn't recommend it sadly as it was the worst experience I've had in India.

I’m no shrinking violet but going here with my wife and two 13 year old daughters was not what I would describe as a great experience or indeed, a fair taste of India. Not sure what place the Lonely Planet reporter went to but it wasn’t the same place as me!!

An interesting enough walk down a bustling market alley gets you to the small entrance to this Sufi shrine, but at this point you are first hit by the unwelcome feeling of being in a “very big crowd in a small place where you have absolutely no idea of what is going on”.....

And then the hustling....oh yes, the hustling....lots of it. Being the only foreigners there we were clearly the honey around which the bees would gather....It starts apace with first the flower sellers and then the headscarf sellers and then more flower sellers and then the religious sweet sellers and then the candle sellers.....and then the “charity” collectors....To be very honest, despite an apparent religious significance and holiness, this temple shrine is actually not much more than a chaotic madhouse....and not one for the uninitiated.... with crowds of people only too eager to relieve you of your pennies.

We spent about 30-40 minutes here and the whole time I felt concerned for both my possessions and my family, as you are continuously disorientated by people constantly coming at you from all directions. Without the crowds it would probably be a pretty and fascinating place, but I didn’t get to experience any of that I’m afraid. Now I’m not a religious person at all, but I was struck by one thought while I was in this place (while not thinking about protecting my wallet)....something I remembered from my old Religious Studies lessons at school, about Jesus and the money changers....so I googled the passage when I got back to the hotel and this passage pretty much sums up my thoughts about what the authorities need to do having visited this place today.........

“And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves."

So, if you’re up for it, good luck but if you are not up for a challenge steer clear....until some order is imposed on this place.

A great place to be in. Quite inspiring. This is quite close by from KGH. Hazrat Nizamuddin is one of the treasures that you will find in this part of Delhi. WE walked down and the walk is not so comfortable. A little incopvenient to approach easily.
