About Haji Ali Dargah

Famous for being the mosque in the middle of the Arabian Sea, Haji Ali is situated 500 yards from the shoreline of Mumbai. Haji Ali is a paramount religious site of Mumbai that houses the tomb of Saint Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari. The 400-year-old mosque is marvelled at for its intricate Indo-Islamic architecture and the unusual location. It is believed that the Haji Ali Dargah was built by a wealthy merchant known as Haji Ali Shah Bukhari. The merchant decided to leave all the worldly possessions and turned into a saint. Just on the way to Mecca, Haji Ali died, and the casket that carried his body floated back to the Dargah on its own. Since then, the monument has been a guardian of the shores of Mumbai. The whitewashed construction comprises of an area of a marble courtyard containing the central shrine of Haji Ali. Like a Muslim Shrine, the tomb is covered by a red and green fabric sheets. The tomb is guarded by a beautiful silver frame and marble pillars. The main shrine is supported with marble pillars adorned with artistic mirror work with blue, green, yellow pieces of glass in kaleidoscopic patterns. The Arabic patterns on the pillars spell the ninety-nine names of Allah. The complex has separate praying rooms for ladies and gents. The dargah cannot be accessed during the high tide and stays completely isolated during those times.
