Nizamuddin, Delhi, India.

Following on from yesterday's posting and continuing the journey through India, we visit Nizamuddin Dargah in Delhi. This location is the dargah, or mausoleum,  of Nizamuddin Auliya (also known as Hazrat Nizamuddin) one of the world's most famous Sufi saints.  Whilst the saint himself died in 1325,  the present structure was built in 1562 and today is visited by people of all faiths.

This is the second time I've visited this location, and on this occasion I left with the feeling that I didn't really get as much out of the visit,  at least photographically.   It's hard to explain why but for some reason things just didn't quite click for me,  perhaps being a second visit,  my expectations were different?   ~KD.
