About Dargah: Moinuddin Chishti (1141 – 1236) also known as Gharib Nawaz (Benefactor of the Poor), was an imam, Islamic scholar and philosopher from South Asia. Moinuddin Chishti introduced and established the Chishti Order of Sufism in the Indian sub-continent. The initial spiritual chain or silsila of the Chishti order in India, comprising Chishti, Qutbuddin Bakhtiar Kaki, Fariduddin Ganjshakar and Nizamuddin Auliya—each successive person being the disciple of the previous—includes the great Sufi saints of Indian history. Various Mughal emperors were followers of Chishti.
