Dargah of Mehmood Chirag in New Delhi serving as a symbol of communal harmony

The shrine of Sufi saint Hazrat Nasiruddin Mehmood Chirag located in the Chirag Dilli area of New Delhi is an abode of peace and tranquillity.

Cutting across all religious lines, a number of devotees visit the holy shrine to offer prayers to Sufi Saint and wish for peace and harmony.

Nasiruddin Mehmood was a 14th-century mystic poet and Sufi Saint of the Chishti order.

A disciple of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya and his successor, Mehmood was considered as the last important Sufi of the Chishti order.

Given the title of 'Roshan Chirag-e-Delhi', the Sufi saint's mausoleum was built by the then Sultan of Delhi Firoz Shah Tughluq in the 18th century.

The Dargah is a beautiful piece of architecture that imbibes a pious and positive vibe which is why devotees of different religions are attracted to this holy place.

The Dargah of Nasiruddin Mahmud is a perfect example of communal harmony that is witnessed throughout the length and breadth of our country.

The solidarity among the different religious communities has remained a hallmark of India's unity since time immemorial.
