Hazrat Nizamuddin's Tomb
Located in the historic Nizamuddin village, about 2 kilometers from Humayun's tomb, and not far from the eastern end of the Lodi Road, is the Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin. It is the shrine of a famous humanitarian Muslim Sufi and mystic saint, Sheikh Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia Chishti.

Born at Badaun in the state of Uttar Pradesh in 1236, Sheikh Hazrat Nizamuddin was the disciple of the saint Sheikh Farid Shakarganj, who appointed him as his successor. Said to be a direct descendant of Sheikh Nizamuddin Chisti, he had a large following which included Alauddin Khilji, Mohammed bin Tughlaq and the great poet Amir Khusrau. The royal processions of the Mughal Emperors Babur, Humayun, Akbar, Jahangir, and Shah Jahan always halted at Nizamuddin's shrine, while the Emperor paid his respects at the sacred dargah. The revered saint was popular among people of all faiths because of his doctrine of renunciation and tolerance towards other religions. It is said that he prophesied Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq would never return to Delhi again and the ruler died soon after. Hazrat Nizamuddin died in 1325 and his shrine today is a popular pilgrimage site.

Hazrat Nizamuddin Tomb


Hazrat Nizamuddin's original tomb no longer exists. Faridun Khan, a nobleman, built the present structure in the mid-15th century, and it was repaired and decorated by Firoz Shah Tughlaq, as well as by later rulers. A mosque and many other tombs of famous people surround the dargah, as they 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 jalis. Worshippers tie red threads to these jalis as signs of wishes they hope will be fulfilled. The roof is surmounted by a dome, which is ornamented by vertical stripes of black marble with lotus cresting. It is said that Akbar II constructed this imposing dome. The main grave is wrapped with a scented chadar or cloth, which is dark green in color. Devotees offer their prayers at the shrine by showering rose petals and lighting incense sticks. Pilgrims congregate at the shrine twice a year for the festival or Urs held to mark the anniversaries of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia and the renowned poet Amir Khusrau.

The best day to visit the shrine is on Thursday evening to experience the faith of the devotees, who visit the shrine, seeking fulfillment of their prayers.
