The village of Chiragh-Delhi, on Malaviya Nagar-Kalkaji road, grew up slowly around the Tomb of Nasiru'd-Din Mahmud entitled 'Raushan Chiragh-i-Dili' (illuminated lamp of Delhi), supporter of Hazrat Nizamu'd-Din whom he als

The tomb consists of a twelve-pillared square chamber, enclosed within perforated screens and surmounted by a plastered dome rising from an octagonal drum, with small domed turrets at the four corners.

It has been renovated, decked and provided with a number of halls from time to time, such as a 'Majlis-Khana' (assembly hall), Mahfil-Khana (symposium hall) and several mosques among which, one was built by King Farrukhsiyar (1713-19). There exits also numerous tombs and graves inside the enclosure of the dargah
