Nizamuddin's tomb commands popularity because of the saint's preaching of tolerance towards other religions and a liberal outlook. Nizamuddin Auliya, born in 1238, represented the Chisti order of Sufism in Delhi. He died in 1325. Mughal Emperors like Babur, Humayun, Akbar, Jahangir, and Shah Jahan visited the shrine to pay respect. Legends say that Nizamuddin Auliya had pious followers in Alauddin Khilji , Mohammed bin Tughlaq and the great poet Amir Khusrau . People of different religion pay their respect to the shrine of the saint even today. Historical records inform that Hazrat Nizamuddin predcited that sultan Ghiyasuddin tughlaq will not return to Delhi and evidence show that it proved correct when the Sultan died around the outskirts of the city if Delhi. In 1562 a rich merchant- Faridu'n Khan reconstructed the tomb, the original structure of the shrine being destroyed years back.
