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!! 🙂
