Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya Dargah, Delhi

India's insider take:

If you fancy a break from Delhi's groomed World Heritage–sponsored sites, then head to the mausoleum of 14th-century Sufi saint Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, a major site of pilgrimage for Muslims in the city. A crowded, winding bazaar road leads to the temple entrance, where a 16th-century marble pavilion contains the grave of Nizamuddin. Come on a Thursday to hear the famous qawwalis chanted by a group of musicians seated in the courtyard; they start at around 6 pm, but get there a little earlier to avoid the masses.—Vanessa Able
