Phoolwalon Ki Sair

To the south of the western gateway is the tomb of Qutb Sahib. It is a simple structure enclosed by wooden railings. The marble balustrade surrounding the tomb was added in 1882. The rear wall was added by Fariduddin Ganj-e-Shakar as a place of prayer. The western wall is decorated with coloured fl oral tiles added by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. The screens and the corner gateways in the Dargah Complex were built by the Mughal emperor Farrukhsiyar. The mosque of Qutb Sahib, built in mid-sixteenth century by Islam Shah Suri, was later added on to by Farrukhsiyar. The Dargah of Qutbuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki continues to be a sacred place for the pilgrims of different religions. Every week on Thursday and Friday qawwali is also performed in the dargah.
