Standing deftly for seven hundred years, this tomb is also known as Dargah of Shah Kalandar Khizar Khan, the son of Allau-din Khilji. Bu-Ali-Shah Kalandar was a saint born in 1190 A.D.
Enclosed at Qalandar chowk, this is one tomb, whose architecture matches the likes of Ajmer Dargah, Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah at Delhi among others, but is largely unexplored as of now. This mausoleum, constructed in the Mughal era, by the army general of Emperor Jahangir, Mahabat Khan, was made in the memory of the famous Sufi saint of the Chishti order, Hazrat Shareefuddin Bu Ali Shah Qalandar, or Bu Ali Shah Qalandar for common reference. He completed his studies at an early age and used to teach near the famous Qutb Minar of 20 years. A popular saint of the Delhi Sultanate, he was said to be the spiritual disciple of the famous saint, Qutbuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki himself. This tomb is thronged annually in the famous festival of Urs by devotees of all classes and religions. This is one destination which should be earmarked in your itinerary for Panipat.
