Jamali Kamali Tomb
Further down is the Jamali Kamali
masjid and tomb, which has recently been renovated by INTACH, an
autonomous cultural organization. Jamali was the alias of the Sufi
saint Shaikh Fazlullah, who was also known as Jalal Khan. The saint
had a prodigious life he lived right through Sikander Lodi's
reign, the famous battle of Panipat in 1526, Babur and died during the
lifetime of Humayun. Who Kamali was remains a tantalizing mystery.
¤ The Construction
The tomb and mosque bearing their names lie within yards of each
other. They were started in Babur's time in about 1528 and finished in
Humayun's reign by 1535-36.
¤ The Tomb
The tomb lies immediately behind the mosque and is a smallish
chamber. Small but not humble. Upon entering it your eye is
immediately caught by the richly ornamented ceiling and walls. They
are covered with tiles of various hues and patterns in incised and
painted plaster. Several verses compose by Jamali are also inscribed
on the walls.
The beautiful and spruce lawns of Jamali Kamali make it a popular
picnic spot for Delhites.
