Haji Ali

Haji Ali Dargah is one of India’s most popular religious landmarks, situated 500 yards from the Mumbai shoreline in the middle of the Arabian Sea, off Lala Lajpatrai Marg. The structure was erected in the early 19th century after the Trust was legally formed as an entity in 1916, and houses the tomb of the Muslim Saint, Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari. It is noted that about ten to fifteen thousand people visit the Dargah daily. The number of visitors increases to thirty thousand on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
