Haji Ali Dargah
The Haji Ali Dargah is a historical landmark in Mumbai, and is also one of the most prestigious Islamic symbols situated in South Mumbai. The Haji Ali was built by a wealthy Muslim merchant who became a saint named Haji Ali Shah Bukhari. He renounced all worldly pleasures before embarking on a pilgrimage to Mecca. The Haji Ali Dargah was built in his honor in 1431 AD.
The Dargah can only be accessed during the low tides via a causeway that is surrounded by the sea on all sides. At night, the view of the shrine lit up in the distance with nothing but the sea around it, is a divine sight.
This stunning white-coloured dargah attracts about 10-15 thousand people daily. God lovers from all over the world, irrespective of caste, creed and religion visit the dargah to offer their prayers and get their wishes fulfilled by the blessings of the revered Saint.
