A song full of passion for the Almighty, a sanctuary full of energetic and emotional devotees, Nizamuddin Dargah in Delhi is a gateway to heaven.
Hidden away in the coil of bazaars selling ittars (perfumes) and rose petals, is the mystical and beautiful shrine of Muslim saint Nizam-ud-din Auliya in New Delhi, the capital of India. Here, the melodious sufi music draws you in from a distance and introduces you to the devotional tunes known as Qawwalis. The faith hidden in the Urdu lyrics becomes more mesmerising when devotees come together and sing along with passion and reverence. At the Nizamuddin Dargah, qawwalis usually begin on a gentle note and gradually go on to high energy tempo levels that induce a hypnotic state among both the singers and the listeners.
Watch as this form of devotion sweeps you off your feet.
