Khwaja Salim Chisti (1478-1571) was a Sufi saint and a revered successor of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti (Ajmer Sharif). A popular legend states that Emperor Akbar visited the mystic to pray for a successor and was later blessed with three sons. He named his first son Salim (Jahangir). On Saint’s demise, the Emperor built the city Fatehpur Sikri around the Dargah, as a mark of his devotion. Although the tomb was originally built with red sandstone, it was later converted into a beautiful marble mausoleum in Mughal architecture. Every year, lots of devotees visit the shrine to pray for a child and tie a thread on the Jalli (carved windows). When their wish is fulfilled, they come back to express their gratitude to the Saint.
