3. Hear the Qawwali at Hazrat Nizammudin Dargah
It would be a shame to visit Delhi and not witness the magic of qawwali. The Nizamuddin Dargah is the resting place of revered Sufi saint Nizamuddin Aulia. Every Thursday evening, its courtyard erupts with the most melodious qawwali, backed by gripping music produced in tabla and harmonium. Sit in the large marble courtyard in front of the tombstone and let the magic of qawwali serenade you into a trance.

The site of the Humayun's Tomb was chosen on the banks of Yamuna river, due to its proximity to Nizamuddin Dargah, the mausoleum of the celebrated Sufi saint of Delhi, Nizamuddin Auliya. The path is lined with brightly lit shops and scent of the flowers mingles with the smoke from agarbattis. The divinity of the Dargah can only be experienced.
