Dargah Hzt. Mai Sahiba (Adhchini, Delhi) – the shrine of divine mother of Hzt. Nizamuddin Auliya

Many Dilli-waalas are aware of Hzt. Nizamuddin Auliya, anecdotes from his life and the way he is loved by so many seekers! But not many are aware that one of the narrow by-lanes of South Delhi also houses the final resting place of the woman who brought this great Sufi saint into this world. We bring to you the shrine/dargaah of Hzt. Mai Sahiba, the divine mother of Hzt. Nizamuddin Auliya! Happy Exploring 🙂

Sufi Rang – Kaafi : the joyous Spring and a musical voyage across Delhi

Sufi Rang – Kaafi : the joyous season of Basant Bahaar – Spring and a musical journey across the land of Sufis – Delhi! 🙂

This melody is woven around the raag Kaafi which is associated with the spring season in India. Often, several Indian traditional tunes associated to the festival of Holi and Basant are woven around this melodic scale itself. The visuals have been shot at several Sufi shrines in Delhi like the shrines of Qutub Saheb, Chirag-e-Dehlavi, Mai Saheba, Matka Pir, Hzt. Nizamuddin Auliya and some more historical places in Delhi.
