Video - In and Around Chote Hazrat ki Dargah
The row of arches on the hill leading to the top is a wonderful sight. The Dargah or mortuary was built in the memory of Hazrat Ali, the son-in-law of prophet Muhammad.
Legend says that Yakoob, a eunuch in the court of Ibrahim Quli went to the hill after he saw Hazrat Ali was seated on it. He saw the impression of Hazrat Ali's palm on a stone, which was very much similar to the one he saw in his dream. He was surprised and he had the impression hewn out and installed in a shrine, then built an arch over the spot.
Later Ibrahim Shah built a mosque just beside the dargah. A 'Ashurkhana', a 'Baradari' or pavillion and a 'Naqqar Khana' or place for beating drums were added during the Qutub Shahi period. The Dargah draws people from all over the country and abroad too, especially on the 8th and 10th days of Muharram people of all religions come here.
Number of people are attracted towards the Dargah from all over the world. This place is full during the celebration of Muharram. There are many people who come here regularly and some people visit every day and especially on every Friday for the special prayers.
