Monday, April 17, 2017

Dargah-e-Hakimi is located in  Lodhipura, Burhanpur in Madhya Pradesh. One has to travel by the Dargah-e-Hakimi road to reach it.
After being disappointed at Kundi Bhandara, we travelled around 7 KM to reach Dargah-e-Hakimi.

Syedi Abdul Qadir Hakimuddin (1665 - 1730 AD) is the holy saint of the Bora Community. He was buried in Burhanpur. His grave is visited by pilgrims all year round. 

The Dargah-e-Hakimi complex comprises of Mosque, gardens and accommodation for the pilgrims.

Non Bora Community members are also allowed in the Dargah premises. They have to cover their heads. The Dargah premises was packed with people. 

The domes of the Mosque's are beautifully designed. All the three mosques are white in color. The white colored mosque and the blue color skies made the picture perfect.


Though there were so many people seated there, not a sound could I hear. There was silence. A nice place to be at peace with oneself. 

After Fathima offered prayers, we then headed out of the premises to have some snacks in the form of samosa's and meat cutlets. 

The time was 6 PM on my watch and we had to hunt for a place to stay for the night. We decided to head to Burhanpur town for accommodation. 

After checking a couple of places we finally settled down for Hotel Madhuvan located very close to the Kali Masjid aka Jama Masjid in Burhanpur. 

The rooms were not that great.But that didn't bother us much as we are travelers and we were there to visit historical sites, instead of staying in the room. The room cost was Rs.600 for a double bed non AC. We didn't take AC rooms as it was cold there. The good thing about this hotel is that the checkout time is 24 hours from the time one checks in. Nice na. As we checked in at 6:30 PM on Friday evening, we were to checkout at 6:30 PM on Saturday evening. 

We paid the rickshaw driver Rs.1200 for showing us around.
