About Tomb of Salim Chishti

The tomb of Salim Chishti is one of the most significant Sufi shrines in India. Located in Fatehpur Sikri in Agra, the tomb is a fine marble masterpiece and stands where the renowned Sufi mystic- Salim Chishti had his hermitage and had sat in meditation during his lifetime. Akbar constructed this mausoleum as a mark of his respect for the Sufi saint, who foretold the birth of Akbar's son. The Tomb's entrance has four thin pillars with unique Gujarati style serpentine steps that arc upwards to the roof. At the entry, the name of God, the Prophet and the four Caliphs of Islam are inscribed. Shah Jahan later added an exquisite pietra dura work as a mark of respect for the saint. For over 400 years, this monument is immaculately preserved by Archaeological Survey of India. This place is visited by thousands of visitors from all over the world to offer flowers and pray and tie threads in a belief that their wishes would be fulfilled or to just seek the blessing of the saint.
