One should only visit here in cool season

One must pay visit to Dargah for special Salami and prayer in the early Morning after Fajr Namaz and after Maghrib Namaz. Must spend some time late in the night between 2 and 3 am.

Only gets are allowed inside

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.

Historical religious place

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.
