Introduction: Chirag Dehlvi’s Dargah, who also known as Roshan Chirag Dehlvi which literally means Lamp of Delhi. This dargah is situated in South Delhi and is circled by a typical urban village consisting of salons, gyms, groceries, temples. The dargah complex today houses not only the tomb of chirag dehlvi but also several mosques, a majlis khana (assembly hall) and a mehfil khana (symposium hall). Some chhatris and a rather beautiful gateway are all that survive now. The dome is painted white and the walls are green.
