Dargah Sharif

A REVERED Muslim pilgrim centre since the 12th century, the Dargah Sharif contains the tomb of the famous Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti (1143-1236), popularly called Garth Nawaz, or “protector of the poor”. Reputed to possess miraculous powers, people of every faith flock to his dargah to seek favours and blessings. It is said that the saint entered his cell to pray in seclusion until his death on the sixth day. Each year, six days in the seventh lunar month (October) are marked as his Urs (death anniversary celebrations). Over the years, the saint’s royal devotees built grand extensions to the tomb, so that today the dargah complex, teeming with pilgrims and tourists, is virtually a township in itself.
