Adharshila

While entering the Dargah one can witness the graveyard from the very gates. There are other graves present on the main gate towards the right-hand side.

Walking towards the main Mazar (mausoleum) a high plinth can be seen with many ‘ta’wiz’ (amulets) over it. Near the mosque, a minar about 20 feet high is built. The Dargah is an example of majestic architecture, impeccable craftsmanship, and artistry of the medieval age.
