HAJI ALI DARGAH

Tomb of Sufi Saint Haji Ali
The Haji Ali Dargah, is a Mosque, built on a tiny islet located 500 meters from the coast, in the middle of Worli bay, in the vicinity of Worli. It is one of the most popular religious places in Mumbai City. The mosque is a brilliant specimen of the Indo-Islamic style of architecture. The Shrine is spread over an area of approximately 4500 square meters and it houses the tomb of 15th Century Sufi Saint Sayed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari. The tomb is situated just next to the entrance and is covered with a green and red colored shawl. An exquisite silver frame supports the tomb which itself is supported by marble pillars.

The Haji Ali Dargah is considered to be a sacred place in Mumbai city. People of all faiths and sects visit the Dargah to offer their prayers and for the fulfillment of their wishes by the blessings of the Saint Haji Ali. The mosque has separate worship rooms for men and women according to the Muslim tradition.

What a beautiful mosque! The shrine is so big!

I wish I had money to travel I would love to see beautiful places such as this!! At least I get to see photos in your posts :)

That is pretty cool about how it is only accessible during low tide! It must have been a well planned build, due to transport of construction materials between tides.

What an interesting place to visit. I'd love to know more about the history.

Is flooding ever an issue since the roadway leading to it is underwater during high tide? This sounds like a fascinating place to visit!

I bet it is a beautiful place to visit. I am not quite sure how I would feel though about it being restricted at times because of the tides.

I'm Jewish so I don't really know what to say about it!

Is that lattice style stonework on the front? I love the architecture here and especially the archway.

I don't think I'd be brave enough to visit, though. I have issues with water. Unless you can get there by water taxi.

That's fascinating that it can only be reached during low tides! Beautiful place.

Beautiful. I think it adds such an aspect that it is only reached during the low tide.
