Haji Ali Dargah, Mumbai

About Haji Ali Dargah

A wealthy merchant Sayyed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari gave up all his wealth before his pilgrimage to Mecca. And as a gesture of respect to the saint, this dargah spread over 45,000 sq. meters was built on an islet (just 500 meters away from the cost) in 1413.

The dargah share a similar popularity as it is with Siddhivinayak Mandir, with over 40,000 pilgrims visiting alone on Thursdays and Fridays. Even many politicians and movies stars visit this dargah to get blessings. On Fridays, there is a special attraction to this place as many Sufi musicians perform Qawwali, which is said to be the most divine form of music.

This dargah is built in a Indo-Islamic style with a type of marble which was used in building the Taj Mahal, Makrana. Along with the tomb of Sayyed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari, there is also a mosque present in the dargah.  Since it is surrounded by the sea, the saline winds, in the course of 400 years, have corroded the walls.  Hence the government had ordered the renovation and repair of this monument.
