ABOUT THE WALK
This walk is a mixed bag. DBF will take you to the final resting places of the patron saint of Delhi, Mazzaar-e-Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliya. As we mingle and jostle with the crowds, you will find chaos, the mundane and experience the blend with the mystical. You will walk through lanes that the saint frequented and see history and feel the divinity. Meandering through lanes steeped in more than 750 years of history & divinity, which once saw the great Saint tread on them...where the living & breathing Sufi tenets of spiritual healing continue to teach us lessons of love & hope. People here sell kaftans & kebabs, flowers & ‘ittars’ (fragrances), masalas & mithaais. For lovers of classical Sufi music, this is a treat.
