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.

As the nature sings ‘Miyaan ki Malhaar‘ this morning in Delhi, we bring to you, from Gwalior, the serenity and grandeur of the final resting place of the great musician MIYAAN TANSEN, his son BILAS KHAN (“Bilaskhani Todi” .. remember?) and his spiritual master MOHAMMAD GHAUS!
Noteworthy is the jaali work made with stone carvings, the grand royal graveyard, the Sufi shrine and also the Imli tree which, as popularly believed, often cured TANSEN’s sweet voice 🙂 Hope you’ll like this episode of our Heritage trail in Gwalior! There’s more to come in subsequent episodes! Blessings for al!
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!
In this episode we visit the Mosque and Tomb of JAMALI-KAMALI.
Shaikh Fazlullah (pen name – Jamali) was a Sufi mystic, a poet and a traveller from the early 16th century. One of his known works include a book, a kind of biography of various Sufi saints of Medieval India. Jamali was also the court poet and teacher of Sikander Lodhi and also early Mughal rulers of medieval times.
Kamali is popularly believed to be a close companion of the Sufi saint.
This mosque is a very good example of Indo-Islamic architecture and the tomb still houses within the original colorful tile and plaster work from medieval times!
We also discuss about the recent controversies associated with this place and see glimpses of the royal burial adjoining this Sufi shrine.
Jamali-Kamali is also known to be one of the haunted places in Delhi, however, we didn’t sense anything ghostly during our visit that day ..luckily 🙂
Hope you’ll enjoy this episode. Happy Exploring!! 🙂
