About Kalander Shah Tomb

Kalander Shah Tomb was built to commemorate the kind service of Bo-Ali-Qualander Shah, who was a noble Muslim saint. The complete building is made of marble. Qualender Shah was buried in this tomb. The grave is built using exquisite marble and has sculptures engraved on it. A mosque and a water tank with fountains were built in the premises of the tomb by Emperor Alamgir. Kalander Shah wrote “Diwan Hazrat Sharafuddeen Bu Ali Qalander,” which is poetry in the Persian Language. Legends state that Kalander dreamt that Muhammad visited him is a dream and asked him for a wish. He expresses that he wished of prophethood, to which Muhammad denied, as all positions were occupied. He then asked for the position of Ali, which too was filled. Finally, he pleaded for the fragrance of Ali, and his desire was fulfilled. From that day, Kalander is known as “Fragrance of Ali.' Kalander Shah’s Tomb is visited by a large number of believers of Islam. It is respected by all sections of society who follow the teaching of the Holy Pir. The Muslim festivals are celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm at this tomb. The yearly Urs Mela is the most famous. You can also visit the Dargah of the Sufi saint, which is located in Panipat.
