Haji Ali Dargah
The Haji Ali Dargah is both a mosque and a tomb located in
south-western Mumbai, on an islet off the coast of Worli. The
(tomb) was built in memory of Muslim preacher Syed
Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari in 1431, who was inspired to change the
course of his life after embarking on the Hajj to Mecca. Haji Ali
is only accessible by a 1500-foot (457m) walkway during low tide.
The walkway is generally lined with beggars and vendors, and
Thursdays and Fridays see thousands of pilgrims flocking to Haji
Ali to receive blessings from the dead saint.
Address: Off the coast of Worli, near Mahalaxmi railway
