Haji Ali ki Dargah

Haji Ali ki Dargah is one of the most popular and ancient pious sites in Mumbai. The mosque is 400 years old and is highly revered attracting a lot of Muslim followers and other visitors from all parts of India and across the globe, regardless of any caste, creed and religion. The sacred site marks an impressive Indo-Islamic architecture and was put-up after the name of a saint Haji Ali Shah Bukhari, who was before a Mulsim merchant.  It is believed that before going to the pilgrimage site of Mecca, Haji Ali Shah gave-up on all materialistic things. This blessed site was built as respect to him in 1431 A.D.

One among the candidates for the Seven Wonders of the World, the grand building of the Dargah is spread over an area of around 4500meters and is bordered by marble pillars which still look attractive. The imposing structure of the mosque is constructed of the same Makrana marble of which the Taj Mahal is made. Inside the building there is a mosque and a tomb of Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari. Visitors offer sincere prayers at the mosque and desire for fulfillment of their wishes. The death anniversary of the saint Haji Ali Shah Bukhari is celebrated here with great devotion.
