Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Here, around 30 kilometres North-West of Chhatrapati Sambhaji Nagar (old name Aurangabad) in Maharashtra, on the way to Ellora Caves, is the small sacred municipal town Khuldabad, which houses the mortal remains of 1400 Sufi saints of 14th century AD. Early this month, we visited this ‘Abode of Eternity' the literal translation of the Parsi word Khuldabad, to pay homage to three learned great holy souls of Chishti Sufism Zar Zari Zar Baksh, Shaikh Burhan ud-din Gharib Chishti and Shaikh Zain-ud-din Shirazi in their Dargahs.

Early morning, we visited Grishneswar Jyotirlinga Shiva temple, about five kilometres north of Khuldabad and offered puja. Coming to Khuldabad we visited first, the Dargah of Hazrat Shaikh Zar Zari Zar Baksh Dulha. The Khadim of Dargah narrated, in brief, the life of Hazrat Zar Zari Zar who was instructed by his spiritual master Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliya of Delhi, the most famous Indian Sunni Muslim scholar and Sufi saint of the Chishti Order to travel from Delhi to here in Khuldabad along with 1400 pious Sufi fakirs to spread the great ideals of Chistie Sufism. I entered his Mazar and prayed, touching the holy tomb of the Sufi saint. Here and there, we found hundreds of tombs of Sufi saints.

Next, I visited the mausoleum of Shaikh Zain-ud-din Shirazi whom Moghul emperor Aurangzeb Alamgir regarded as his spiritual Master. I entered the Mazar and prayed for a while.  In this Dargah complex, in the southeast corner, Emperor Aurangzeb rests for eternity under the open sky. Although infamous in history, Aurangzeb was a very devoted Muslim. Unlike the gorgeous Maqbaras of his ancestors, as per his wish, his son Mahammad Azam and daughter Zeenat-un-Nissa buried the richest and most powerful emperor, in this present place.  A simple red stone slab, three yards long, two yards wide, and a few inches deep, with a hollowed-out centre, marks the spot. The slab itself bears no inscription whatsoever, allowing a small portion of the grave to remain open to the sky. Lord Curzon made the present marbled floor and decorated marbled jali walls on the sides. After Aurangzeb, his third son Muhammad Azam seized the throne and proclaimed himself emperor. But within two months, he was dethroned and killed by his elder half-brother in the war of succession. On the east side of Aurangzeb’s tomb, in an open-air walled area, there are the tombs of Azam Shah and his Begum.

On the opposite side of the road coming out of Shaikh Zain-ud-din Dargah we entered through the Darwaja of Shaikh Burhan ud-din Gharib Chistie. Here, I also entered the Mazar of the holy saint and prayed. As I was coming out, I met in the courtyard the Sajjadanashin or the spiritual head of the Dargah. I had a nice talk with him and he took me near a room whose door was closed and covered with a heavy tapestry. He instructed me to pray here after covering me with the tapestry. In this room a wooden box carefully preserves the holy relics of the ‘Parahan’ (the robe of the prophet) and ‘Taj’ given to Burhan-ud-din upon succeeding to the Caliphate. The relics are displayed to the public once a year.

Visiting all three Dargahs, we felt the serenity and the sacredness of the places the eternal abode of some great souls of mankind.
 
At around noon we left Khuldabad for our destination to Aurangabad.

Contrary to most people's judgement of Aurangzeb, seeing his tomb and learning about his simple ways, clearly shows that a person has many shades to themselves. A person's views ,opinions their meaning of life often change.
Aurangzeb wanted his grave to face the skies, he wanted it to be built from his own earnings which he made by stitching and selling caps and calligraphy / writing of the Qur'an.
A Thai basil ( sabja) plant had to be grown on his tomb.
It should be a simple tomb just like that of an ordinary person .
The tomb actually cost 14 rupees and few paise .
Lord Curzon, who started the archaeological survey of India, thought that such a simple grave was not befitting an emperor of hindustan, do he had decoration done.
Apart from this history, there are people who are looking after the complex, keep asking for donations. Good aspect is that they are happy with 20 rupees or even less. The place is clean and well looked after.

We had some spare time and saw a sign for this place so we asked our driver to stop. It contains several tombs and also, tucked behind a golden door, the Prophet's robe. Unfortunately, at each spot we had a different guide who would request a donation to the site as well as a tip for himself. They don't seem to get many foreign tourists I suspect. Both my

husband and I got wacked with peacock feathers as a form of blessing.

To see for oneself the man who has ruled the state with a sense of split religious beliefs and views.

Make this visit only if you are into visiting sites of historical importance. We were and therefore made the effort to go there. Aurangzeb who died in 1707 wished to be buried in an unmarked grave next to his spiritual master. The money, Rs 14, kept aside for this purpose was what he had earned from stitching caps . The marble trellis was constructed in 1920 on a suggestion from the Viceroy, Lord Curzon.

We both visited this place last year. They did not allow photography. The Mughal emperor is buried here in a very simple and grave here. He willed that he should be buried near his spiritual master.

Aurangzeb, the Mughal Emperor is buries in a simple grave in Khuldabad in Aurangabad district.
He had willed that he wanted to be buried near his spiritual master Shaikh Zaynuddin Shirazi so that he who was "steeped in sins" may hope for redemption because of his proximity to the saint.
Only 14₹ which he had earned from sewing caps was to be spent.
Later the seventh Nizam of Hyderabad got a delicate marble screen placed around it as well as a marble platform for the grave.
Though khuldabad is a city of saints with their tombs dotting the area, most tourists come to see his tomb.
Do visit the other tombs too

This is a small and rather shabby site important only because the emperor Aurangzeb was originally entombed there (he's now at Khuldabad, not far from Ellora, in a somewhat more attractive site). There's very little of interest here now.

You may be let down when you see this monument after visiting the great mughal monuments in Agra and Delhi. It's just a tomb and a small structure raised. Aurangzeb wanted to keep it town less celebrated and hence chose for a plain and simple structure. Visit the place if you have some spare time.
