Hazrat Nizamuddin Tomb - New Delhi

The historic Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin is located in the Nizamuddin village, about two km from Humayun’s tomb, not far from the eastern end of the Lodi Road, New Delhi. This Tomb commemorates the memory of the great Sufi saint Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya who represented the Chisti order of Sufism in Delhi, India. It is also known as the Dargah of Nizamuddin Auliya. Hazrat Nizamuddin's Tomb is a sacred place for the both Hindus as well as Muslims.

Construction of the tomb
Hazrat Nizamuddin’s
original tomb no longer exists. It was vandalized and then demolished by succeeding raiders of Delhi. Faridum Khan built the present structure in the mid of 15th century. It was repaired and decorated by Firoz Shah Tughlaq. Later rulers too did not neglect its upkeep. A mosque and many other tombs of famous people surround the dargah. These noblemen wished to be buried near the saint. It has a marble-paved courtyard where the sacred shrine of the saint can be seen. Shah Jahan later added the majestic pavilion with its marble arches and lattice screens known as jails.
The original grave of Nizamuddin is covered by a dark green cloth to pay respect to the saint. Every year thousands of devotees visit this place. The devotees normally visit the shrine on Thursday. They come there in large numbers seeking fulfillment of their prayers that day.
