Create an itinerary including Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti
One of the most highly regarded examples of Mughal architecture in the country, Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti serves as the final resting place of the Sufi saint. Devotees visit the graceful 16th-century tomb to request blessings from the saint, tying a signifying thread to the marble screens that enclose the building so their wishes will not be forgotten. Admire the intricately carved edifice, adorned with arabesques and selections from the Koran, and the plinth's yellow and black mosaics. Note that women will have to wear a scarf on their head to enter, and all visitors must remove their shoes. Wear socks so as not to burn your feet on the sun scorched ground.

  • Place is very good but guides and other people are asking money for dargha's charges. He asked me 2k. Be aware
  • Historical place. But beware of these so called mulla. They sit just backside of the tomb and they have few piece of cloth which they say u can buy and They say the amt goes for donation (poor people) for near by village. Which I doubt. They ask u around 2000 rs.and try to given a piece of cloth worth 20 rs. Better avoid this place.
