"Perfect place to visit with family and meet the Mughal Art"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 21, 2015
The perfect place to meet with the Mughal Art and relive those days, then must visit. The place is bit crowded, but has lot to offer. Pilgrims all over the World. Bazaar, Dargah, Delicious food, neat and clean environment and lot more to make you please and take you closer to almighty. The street food and restaurants nearby offer you mouthwatering aroma and the perfect taste.

The inner core of the main building, made up with glass and marbles provides the spectacular view. The place is perfect to visit with family and got good connectivity. You can enjoy, roam around and have fun and be in touch to the almighty. Give a try..!! :) :)

"Only gets are allowed inside"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Aug 11, 2015
The Dargah is really huge and resembles the Moghul architecture. Only gents are allowed inside the dargah. It has a big masjid where gents offer namaz and ladies offer their prayers near the dargah.

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 2, 2014
Khwaja Bande Nawaz Dargah is one of the most popular place situated in Gulbarga. After completing my office work at Gulbarga first I visited this historical religious place. Dargah is very good, inside I have seen tombs of khwaja bande nawaz. I have heard that every year there will be a Urs Shareef where lakhs of devotees visit.
