Nizamuddin Dargah Tours

Nizamuddin Dargah
The shrine of a renowned Sufi saint, Nizamuddin Dargah is a stunning architectural gem of Delhi, a dome and series of arches rising up from the middle of the crowded city. Containing several tombs, it is surrounded by courtyards and latticed screens called jalis, enhanced by candlelight and the smell of incense. Famous poets and a Mughal princess have been buried inside, and you will find many worshippers that come here to pray. Thousands visit daily and people with all religious affiliations are welcome.

It’s close to Humanyun’s Tomb, one of Delhi’s top sites, and they are often visited together in tours. Don’t miss the qawwali (Sufi devotional songs) singers if it’s a Thursday evening — the live performance is accompanied by traditional Indian musical instruments. The dome becomes spectacularly lit up at night. Many call their visit to the mausoleum spiritual, especially when accompanied by a qawwali performance.
