“The Karbala of Delhi”: a spiritual sanctuary to Shias unable to visit holy shrines in distant lands

The Indian newspaper “patriot” has published a detailed report on “the Karbala of Delhi”, a sacred place in India that provides a spiritual sanctuary for believers who cannot visit holy shrines in distant countries.

Located in the town of “Jor Bagh” in central Delhi, this historical gem dates back 700 years, making it one of the oldest spiritual sites in India.

The place, known as “Dargah Shah-e-Mardan,” is an important place for the Shia Muslim community in India, attracting people of all faiths and backgrounds. People come here to nurture their spirituality and engage in contemplation.

Reports suggest that this site was known before the partition of India in 1947 as the “Karbala Colony,” surrounded by high walls.

Prominent figures such as Emperor Timur Lang and India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru visited this place.

Believers flock daily to Shah-e-Mardan to seek blessings by viewing a historic millstone believed to have been used by Lady Fatima Zahra, the daughter of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon them, to grind wheat during her blessed life.
