A beautiful Sufi shrine visiting which brings peace to the heart. One has to enter through crowded lanes but once inside the main shrine area everything is open and very clean. Entry of women is allowed upto the main gate of the shrine, both men and women have to dress modestly and make use of some sort of headgear such as a scarf and cap. Within the main shrine there is a medieval wooden roof with calligraphy engraved with mother of pearl. Decorations in the rest of the area is very intricate and ornate. Best time to visit would be early morning to avoid the throng of visitors this shrine gets every day.
Sarkar Nizamuddin. It's one of Delhi’s landmarks. A monument of a pious saint. Visited by thousands of devotees who cut across the barriers of caste, creed and religion and bound by one thread of humanity and peace. Blessed to visit the place. If you need inner peace you should visit the place. Words cannot express feeling of this lovely place.
