Nagore Experience: I have been to the Holy Nagore Dargah last week. Nagore Dargah is the shrine dedicated to Meeran Sahib Abdul Qadir Shahul Hamid Badshah which is one of the popular pilgrimage centre for muslims in Tamilnadu. The Dargah is standing as a proof of the harmonious co-existence of Hindu-Muslim communities.
The main campus at Nagore is enclosed by a compound wall, with four entrances, one each on the north, south east and west. The large tower called 'Periya Minara' stands at a height of 131 ft. The mortal remains of Meeran Sahib, his son Syed Mohd Yousuff and his daughter-in-law Saeeda Sultana Biwi are buried in the tombs situated in three separate chambers in a golden dome building. I made ziyarat in the tomb of Holy Meeran Sahib and I felt a good mental peace while coming out.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: As a pilgrimage centre, there is no importance for food, sight seeing and shopping, but you can visit the beautiful sea shores.
Activities & things to do: You can make ziyarat at the tombs of these holy people.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: You can reach by train or bus from Thiruchirappalli or Thanjavur which are important stations to Nagapattinam and then to Nagore. You can also catch direct trains from Chennai and Ernakulam.
