Photos are allowed throughout and there appears to be no strict dress code, as in many... More

This tomb is within the complex. Its a beautiful white tomb where people come and visit. Some come with wishes waiting to be granted. There are many small tombs within this complex.

The Sheikh is very popular amongst the locals to pray for a child, as he is believed to have bestowed the Emperor Akbar... More

Dargah of Sheikh salim Chisti is a quint marble structure cached within the edifice of red sandstone. The imposing Buland Darwaza is to the left. One has to cover head while entering the sanctum sanctorium. The visitors are advised to be careful of guides who are actually touts. We were fleeced of 2100 rupees in the name of a chadder... More
