The retreat of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya is Delhi's one of most serene monument. This is where the 14th century saint had lived, meditated and died. This is where he used to do his spiritual practices - for instance, going without food or sleep for 40 days - known amongst Sufis as Chilla-Kashi.
In the days of yore, Yamuna river used flow close by and when the river shifted its course further east, a railway line was built in there. In Hazrat Nizamuddin's time, the khanqah was established in wilderness. You can visit this monument as a part of our Delhi leg of golden triangle tours india
Once you visit this area, you can spot the white domes of the gurudwara and lot's of graves in the backyard. It has a very soothing atmosphere.
There is a caretaker who lives there with his many cats. Devotinal songs from the Gurudwara can be heard slowly wafting over the air.
There is an alcove where candles are lighted by the devotees. The Humanyun's tomb complex is nearby, adjacent.
