The shrine of Hazrat Sayed Baba Badam Shah in Ajmer’s Somalpur village is a unique symbol of communal harmony. Built over seven decades ago, the shrine houses a temple and a mosque where people of all religions come to pray.
The Sufi saint, also known as Sat Guru 108, never discriminated against his followers based on their faith. His disciple, Hari Prasad Mishra Uwaisi, became his successor and continued to maintain the sanctity of the shrine.
The shrine’s inclusive approach attracts a majority of Hindu devotees, who honour a Brahmin as their Guru and offer prayers at a Shiva temple within the dargah.
