TOMB OF NIZAMUDDIN AULIA (GHIASPUR/NIZAMUDDIN)
Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya died in AD. 1325, but his original tomb does not exist any longer. It was repaired and decorated by Firuz Shah T ughluq (AD. 1351- 88), but even the repaired building has disappeared. The present tomb was built in A.H. 970 (AD. 1562-63) by Khan of great dignity. The inscriptional text was composed by Faridun. The
repairs or additions to the tomb complex continued by the devotees. It consists of a square chamber surrounded by verandahs, which are pierced by the arched openings, while its roof is surmounted by a dome placed on an octagonal drum. The dome is
decorated by vertical strips of black marble and is crowned by a lotus crest.
