Haji Ali Dargah was constructed in 1431, in the memory of a Muslim merchant, Sayyed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari. Located on an island close to the sea shore of Worli, this shrine is visited by over 40,000 people on all days, particularly Thursdays and Fridays. Being located in the middle of the sea, the dargah remains closed at the time of high tide.

The structure of this dargah symbolises Indo-Islamic style of architecture. There is a narrow pathway from the Worli bay that connects the shrine with the city. It is just a 500 yard walk for the devotees from the bay to the shrine.

Tourists can reach the place by taking taxis, auto rickshaws or buses to the Worli bay and then walking up to the dargah. The nearest railway station is Worli station; hence, people can also board on trains to reach the site. From the station, any means of public transport can be used to reach the bay, from where the dargah is just 500 yards’ walk away.

"People go to fulfil their wishes"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
I think this is the only Dargah in side the Sea. It is one of the old traditional dargah where people from all religion visit for there wish to be fulfilled. You have to walk a mile from main road on a sea road to reach Dargah. Normally people offer Prayers and Chadar on fulfilment of their wish. During high tide the approach road is covered with water.

The dargah is very famous among the Mumbai. It is situated in the middle of the sea and connected by a strip of cemented road, but when on high tide the whole water is filled.

"One of the best divine places"

The place is well maintained and one of the old holy places here in Mumbai. Only distraction is the beggars which you'll find on your way towards the dargah. Not to miss the evening qawwali sessions.

"People of all beliefs and religion visit this Dargah"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Aug 25, 2014
The holy Dargah is situated very next to the Mahalaxmi temple. People of all beliefs and religion visit this Dargah, which is situated few kilometres from the sea. Due to low tide, the visitors can visit the Dargah during the day till 4.00 p.m. and thereafter when the sea level rises, the path is covered by the sea water.

Haji Ali Dargah is a very beautiful religious place which is located in the Mumbai shores. Amazing architecture. It is located in the middle of the sea which is the best part. even non Muslims are allowed inside the Dargah.

"Loved the experience, completely!"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Apr 17, 2014
Haji Ali dargah is a must visit place if you are in Mumbai. Though it is little hot in the morning but just in case you want to avoid the crowd then morning time is your best bet. There is something in this place which keeps you there and makes you to contemplate about the universe and your place in it. This is right next to the sea and the place urges you to believe in humanity once more. The belief of the people in the power of this place makes you religious. I enjoyed the walk till the main darga.
