Sayyid Burhan-ud-din

Burahanuddin Dargah Khuldabad

Burhan ud din Gharib studied under Nizamuddin Auliya, the sultan ul mashaikh of Dehli; and Saiad Mahomed of Karmania relates in the "Seyar ul Aulia," that Burhanud din was invested with the mantle and cap, the symbols of the kaliphat, in succession to the sultan ul mashaikh. Other writers state, that on the death of Shah Muntajab ud din at Daulatabad, his brother Burhan ud din was sent to succeed him, and was accompanied by 1,400 disciples. It appears more probable however, that Burhan ud din succeeded the sultan ul mashaikh as kaliph, and that he emigrated to the Dakhan when sultan Muhammad bin Tughluq transferred the capital from Delhi to Daulatabad. Mujud ud din in his " Bakiat-el-Gharib" gives a biography of Burhan ud din; and haji Saiad Baksh and Shams ud din, the nephew of Hasan bin es Sanjari, were the particular friends of the saint. Burhan ud din allowed music and dancing in the religious exercises at his convent. He remained for some time at Daulatabad and then left for Roza(Khuldabad), where ho died in H. 741(1344 A. D) approx.

When the sovereign Nasir ud din Nasir Khan Faruki of Faruki dynasty of Kandesh captured Asirgarh in A.D. 1399, The town of Burhanpur on the bank of Tapti, was founded in the honor of Burhan ud din.

The Dargah has a large quadrangular courtyard having open fronted building on all sides, and a nagarkhana at the east end. The west end of the quadrangle is used as a school and a door here gives access to an inner courtyard containing several graves. Facing the entrance is the tomb of Sayyad Burhan-ud-din. Within the shrine are preserved some hair of the prophet's beard. The shrine doors are plated with plates of metal wrought into fanciful designs of trees and flowers. There is a mosque in front of the dargah.

The Dargah in Khuldabad attracts thousands of pilgrims each year for the Urus of the saint.
