This well maintained tomb, but hardly visited by tourists, is called Sultan Ghari, considered to be the first Islamic Mausoleum in Delhi, dated 1231, houses the remains of Nasiru'd-Din Mahmud, the eldest son of the third Sultan of Delhi Iltumish, of the Sultanate of Mamluk.

Nasiru'd-Din died before his father, therefore never became a Sultan himself, but the interesting thing is that his tomb has instead become a place where both Hindus and Muslims from the nearby urban villages of Masood Pur, Mahipalpur and Rangpuri go for the their rituals.

This tomb is basically a Dargah, that is, the burial place of a man considered a Saint. Despite being the burial place of a Muslim, Hindus also go there as it often happens with the Dargahs in general, is also a tradition for the new wed couples of the surrounding urban villages to visit the tomb in order to receive the blessings from the Saint.

Thursday, as in all the Dargahs, is a special day for worship in this tomb too, but people still go there every day of the week to pay homage to the Saint and ask to fulfill the their wishes. All around is scattered with ruins of the ancient village immersed in the forest, as well as other tombs of, to me, unknown respected masters.

Don't miss the opportunity to discover the most hidden treasures in Delhi, you do not even feel you are still in a city of millions while here...
