Nizam-ud-din Aulia (1256-1347), a Sufi saint, influenced even the politics of the time. The fascinating mosque built near his tomb is remarkable for its marble masonry. Here lies buried Mirza Ghalib (1797-1869), the great Urdu poet, and Jahanara, the loyal daughter of Shah Jahan. Once, in Shah Jahan's good days, Jahanara's fine muslin caught fire from a lamp, giving her a severe burn. Shah Jahan retired from all business and kept sitting by her side, applying medicines to her wounds. When all physicians failed, a slave, named Arif, did some quackery and healed her wounds. The emperor had Arif weighed in gold and made a gift of the gold to him. In turn Jahanara devoted herself to her aged father's service, when Aurangzeb imprisoned Shah Jahan.

Not far from the spot is the tomb of Amir Khusrau, the historian and musician, a contemporary of Hazrat Nizam-ud-din. The area is known as Nizam-ud-din.
