Hazrat Shiekh Abu Bakr Tusi (ra) alies Hazrat Mataka Shah Baba

Delhi,Delhi, India


While going towards the famed Purana Qila, one can spot a tree within a place of worship from which hang several earthen clay pots. And the compound in which the tree is located is none other than the dargah of Baba Matka Pir which is open to all faiths for worship.While some of the pots are on kekar trees, many others hang from bamboo sticks dug into the ground. To get to the main dargah, one has to climb stairs and one gets to the spot where the pir stayed.
The dargah has an interesting background and the pir whose original name was Hazrat Sheikh Abu Bakr Tulshi Haideri Kalandari Rahmatullah, was supposed to have come from Iran over 750 years ago.

Additional Info

The story goes that one day a thirsty traveller came to him asking for water and the pir offered him water from an earthen pitcher.The traveller then told him that he was suffering from a disease which apparently did not have any cure.The pir said that he would pray for him and when the man returned after some days he was said to have been cured completely of the disease. After the incident, people started thronging the dargah to seek the blessings of the pir. And while they narrated their problems, he would pray for them and the problems would be solved.
