Join us for an evening of a mixed bag of experience: the chaotic, mundane and mystical blend. Walking through a crowd selling kaftans & kebabs, flowers & ‘attars’ (fragrances), masalas & mithaais (Indian Sweets) before we reach the final resting place of the patron saint of #Delhi, “Mazzaar-e-Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliya.”
Nizamuddin is steeped in more than 750 years of history & divinity. A village where the living & breathing Sufi tenets of spiritual healing continue to teach us lessons of love & hope. Where the shayari & music of Khwaja Amir Khusrau still resonate gently. Where the Qawwals mesmerise people with their soulful singing.
A must-do for Dilli history buffs, those who wish to know more about Sufism and lovers of spiritual experiences and photographers.
