Hazrat Nizamuddin Shrine
Across the road from Humayun’s tomb is the shrine of the Muslim Sufi Saint, Nizamuddin Chisti. This is the place where Hazrat Nizam- uddin worshipped for many of his 90 years and where he was buried.
The shrine of Nizamuddin is of atmospheric rather than architectural interest. The courtyard of the dargah has numerous tombs and around it are the offices of various descendants of the saint’s followers and family. A margosa tree shades the red stone screens of the tomb of Amir Khusrau. Further to the middle of the courtyard are marble screens surrounding the two sets of tombs.
To the north of these graves is the tomb of Saint Nizamuddin, surmounted by an Orion dome with a gold pinnacle and surrounded by verandas and finely carved marble screens. To the west of the tomb is a large mosque. To the north of the tomb is baoli or step well fed by several springs. It is believed that bathing or drinking the water will cure incurable diseases.
