Hazarat Nizamuddin Dargah is popular all over the country for the exceptional experience it offers to hear and enjoy the “qawwali” sessions on Thursday evenings. Thousands of Muslims, Hindus and those of other faith and religion visit it every week to witness the beautifully lit up dargah after sunset accompanied by soulful Sufi music. The “qawwali” is held in front of the main entrance of the dargah of the Nizamuddin.
The lyrics for “qawwalis” are usually simple, the vocalists siting in the front with the harmonium player and the accompanying singers are at the back – there is a convergence of voices, a combined effort that is enchanting to the senses. From the tourists to the locals it is a must experience for those who believes in the oneness of god and humanity.
