Lying midway between Jodhpur and Bikaner, the city of Nagaur in the state of Rajasthan has a lot of historical relevance to people of different faiths and sects. Founded by the Naga Kshatriyas, it has many popular attractions of historical significance and Tarkeen Dargah is one of them. It’s a holy shrine of Muslims that is visited by a big number of pilgrims during the holy month of Ramadan.
In terms of popularity, the dargah enjoys the same status that that of the Ajmer dargah, which speaks volume. Tarkeen Dargah was dedicated to Hamidudin Nagauri who was regarded as the pupil of Khawaja of Ajmer. Built in 14th century A.D., the dargah is next only to the Ajmer-e-Sharief when we analyze its prominence and number of annual visits it receives.
Tarkeen Dargah is hugely revered and it holds a place of utter significance among pilgrims here. Khwaja Hamiduddin Nagauri, whom this shrine is dedicated, was one of the chief disciples of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti of Ajmer, and this gives place the importance it has. So, if you ever happen to be in or around Nagaur, take time and give visit to this significant shrine for sure.
