Been coming to Mohalla Garhayya in Bareilly for years now but never knew of this lovely place.
Many centuries ago a Mir Wattan brought a jhanda from Ghauz Pak’s dargah in Baghdad and established it here. Recently a committee was formed which has repaired and built it up

Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jelani was a noted Hanbali preacher, Sufi sheikh and the eponymous founder of the Qadiri Sufi order (selsela). He was born in Ramadan AH 470 (about AD 1077) in the Persian province of Gilan (Iran) south of the Caspian sea. His contribution and renown in the sciences of Sufism and Sharia was so immense that he became known as the spiritual pole of his time, al-Gauth al Azam (the “Supreme Helper” or the “Mightiest Succor”). His writings were similar to those of al-Ghazali in that they dealt with both the fundamentals of Islam and the mystical experience of Sufism.
