    Dargah bomb on 11/10/07

    by Willettsworld Written Oct 24, 2007
    Nizam Gate - main entrance into the Dargah

    When writing these tips and doing some research on them, I stumbled across some news stories about a bomb that exploded at the Dargah on the 11th October 2007, less than 2 weeks ago (at time of writing). There was very little, if any, security when I entered into the compound but this is said to have changed, which is understandable, after 3 people were killed by the bomb. Be warned that there may now be high security measures in place before you enter.

    Donation at the Dargah

    by Willettsworld Written Oct 24, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You may (or should that be will!), be approached by a 'tour' guide at the Dargah where he will show you around the sights and into the saints shrine. Don't expect this to be for free! I gave Rs100 which was taken by a chap with a large donation book by the entrance to the tomb. Other donations are given in one of the large degs (cauldrons) which are found either side of one of the main entrance gates.

    Pushing in the Dargah

    by Willettsworld Written Oct 24, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The entrance into the main tomb of the Sufi saint is rather narrow and so there's a fair bit of pushing and shoving. Whlist inside it doesn't stop there as devotion takes over reality and it becomes a sort of free-for-all.

    Not a danger....

    While walking on the way to Dargah we accidentally passed by this.... area. Just consider, it was in the middle of the town!! This proved to me that travelling independently in India is not for all tastes.....

    Inside the tomb

    entrance to saint's tomb

    We have been warned to keep a close look to our valuables while entering the sain't tomb. In fact as you enter you make a short round circle of the saint's tomb. As the area is rather small it is very crowded and the crowd can be suffocating.
