Dargah of Qutb-Sahib (Qutbuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki)

Located near Gandak ki Baoli in the Mehrauli village, about 400 meters from Adham Khan's tomb lies the Dargah of Qutbuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki, popularly known as Qutb Sahib. Surnamed as Kaki, Qutb Sahib is held in high esteem and has been highly regarded for centuries, as he was the disciple and spiritual successor of Khwaja Mu'inu'd Din Chishti of Ajmer. Born at Ush in Persia, he came to India in the late 12th century and lived here during the reign of Emperor Iltutmish (1211-1236), the founder of the Slave dynasty. The Dargah is considered to be a very sacred place by pilgrims of different religions. It is said that if a pilgrim who truly believes in the saint, makes a wish and ties a thread near the grave, his wishes will be fulfilled. After the fulfillment of the wish, the pilgrim should return to thank the thread and untie the thread. One can see many colorful threads tied in the marble screens.

Qutb Sahib died in 1236 and his grave is the main shrine of the dargah, which was decorated by many later rulers. At present the grave lies in the middle of a rectangular enclosure, which is beautifully embellished and surmounted by a dome built about 60 years ago. The western wall is quite attractive as it is decorated with colored floral tiles added on Aurangzeb's orders. The dargah has many other structures like the assembly house, robe chamber, mosque, drum house tanks and several imposing gates. The northern gate of the Dargah bears an inscription that declares that Shaikh Khalil, a descendent of saint Faridu'd-Din Shakarganj, the successor of Qutb Sahib built it in 1542. Close to the Dargah's Ajmeri Gate, to its left, is Moti Masjid. Aurangzeb's son, Bahadur Shah I, built it in 1709. With three arched openings and double minars, the mosque is an imitation of Aurangzeb's Moti Masjid at Red Fort.

Just as in the Nizamuddin shrine, there are many graves within the premises of this dargah for there were many who wanted to be buried close to the saint. Among the those buried here are the Mughal emperors Bahadur Shah I (1707-12), Shah Alam II (1759-1806), Akbar II (1806-37) and many persons of royal blood. The last Mughal emperor, Bahadur Shah II too wanted to be buried here as he prepared his own grave but after the 1857 war the British deported him to Rangoon where he died and was buried.
