The Dargah of Pir Ismail, as is evident from the name, was built in the memory of Pir Ismail, a tutor to the then Mughal ruler, Aurangzeb. The regal entrance has a large pointed archway, which forms a sort of portico and is built in an intricate style which consists of a Parapet, facade, terrace and a dome. The grave has a theme of Mughal and Pathan architecture.
Dargah of Pir Ismail in Aurangzeb is popular among the locals and is crowded mostly on Thursdays. When visiting it, try and hire a guide to know more about the significance and history. The dargah complex has destroyed water tanks and fountains, the sad remains of a once colourful garden.
