Dargah of Bu-Ali-Shah-Qalandar



Dargah of Bu-Ali-Shah-Qalandar is a famous mausoleum located at Panipat in Haryana. Built in the 13th century, it is dedicated to Baba Bu-Ali-Shah-Qalandar, one among the great Sufi saints and scholars of Panipat.

Made of marble, this tomb is decorated with beautiful sculptures. During 1658-1707, Aurangzeb added a front verandah with beautiful paintings and stylistic calligraphy. A marble screen in front of the tomb also displays the excellence of Mughal architecture.

This tomb is visited by thousands of devotees from far-off places all through the year. Both Hindus and Muslims throng here to worship Baba during Urs Mubarak.

Close to this dargah is a library, which has a large collection of books on Sufism. Ibrahim Lodhi's Tomb is a nearby attraction.
