A lesser known Sufi shrine behind Humayun’s Tomb complex .. Qawwali .. and the story of a humble and great Sufi saint from medieval times!
The shrines of Hzt. Patte Shah and Shah Maulana Abdul Qadeer!
So here’s the final episode from our Heritage Walk at Nizamuddin Basti! In this episode, surrounded by the numerous phool-wallahs and “chappal yahaan rakhiye sahab” folks, we walk through the narrow lanes and reach the main Dargaah complex. We experience the main shrines there and also the Baoli. As the Qawwals churn out one enchanting melody after the other we discuss about the other prominent remains of the Mughal era in the complex. Hope you’ll like the finale 🙂 Stay tuned in for more explorations ahead.. Gwalior’s rich Heritage is in the list next 🙂 Best wishes!
As we proceeded to explore the Nizamuddin Basti further we reached this old graveyard belonging to the Loharu dynasty. This is the final resting ground of the great poet Mirza Asadullah Baig Khan ‘Ghalib’. Join us in this quick virtual journey to this place as the story-teller takes you back to the days of Ghalib and Zafar! Happy Exploring 🙂
Went to Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya Dargaah in Delhi with a bunch of friends.. squeezed that experience into a 3 minute fast-paced video trip here 🙂 Apart from the divine presence in this neighborhood there’s another thing that unites people ..food 🙂 Sharing some quick glimpses of that as well. Hope you like it. Cheers!
The local sweets vendor at the Nizamuddin basti! Didn’t try the sweets myself.. but the Gaajar Halwaa seemed to be a local favorite there 🙂
