    daylight robbery

    by 6aruna Written Nov 27, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Whenever an unsuspecting novice travellor lands in front of the dargah well dressed youngmen tags along and starts giving handy advice and general layout. You are unobtrusively nudged along to the front of the dargah and made to sit in front of equally dignified people who will say some prayers touch your head with peacock feathers all the while saying that you shouldn't give money to unauthorised persons. Then they will fish out a grand book and ask So how much are you going to give ? written in english will be names of some poor fellow and along with it a donation never less than Rs500. If you tell them we came for site seeing and fish out a 50 they lose interest. luckly our hindi was poor so we feigned ignorance and escaped with RS 50 but not poor enough to overhear them saying 'waste of time"

    If you really want to donate put it in an open vessel on the right hand side of the dargah .You have to climb a few stairs.

    Dargah: donations

    Beware of several people sitting outside the main tomb entrance. They ask you to sign in donation books and in fact they can charge you a generous donation. Simply try to ignore them...
