It's sant soopbis darga, nice to see the art of the darga, u can offer chadar to daraga and can tie the thread with 3 wishes. It belived it will be fulfilled. As Akbar got his first son from Jodha after praying to the sopphi. The doors of this darga are beautiful, and the darga is well maintained.

Tomb of Sheikh Saleem Chishti is a famous place in Fatehpur Sikri. A beautiful sample of Mughal architecture, this is a must visit place. I got to witness a secret tunnel that Akbar had made for Anarkali to escape the palace. Yes, the guide told me that Anarkali was not entombed alive!

An hour drive out of Agra with a special local bus trip up to the enclave you could spend hours at the beautiful buildings. The hawkers are in your face and you need to be strong and keep at arms length.

This is a famous place of pilgrimage for all the communities of India and people believe that all the desires of an individual are fulfilled as one commits to tie a thread in the jali around the cenotaph. Akbar was blessed with a child after a long wait after he praying at Sheikh Salim Chisti is the belief.

For Muslims maybe, but for the hoi polloi, this is relatively insignificant. Spend your energy in Akbar's palace and town next door, better time value.

So wish we'd have heeded the advice of fellow reviewers prior to visiting this place. Interesting history. Interesting tomb. However bullied into buying sheet etc by a guide whilst tired and jet lagged and then heavy handedly jostled inside tomb by 'pilgrims' Chastised for smelling rose petals which wed' bought. Left us feeling exploited.Good learning experience

In the ancient time when Akbar was not having any kid, he visited this place of Salim Chisti, he was then blessed with a son after getting blessings of Salim Chisti. Now the Tomb of Salim Chisti is considered to be the place where the wishes come true. Now based on this concept of making wish, there are sellers/ guides... More
