Sanjay Van Delhi
Sanjay Van Delhi
Someone lit many candles under trees. In the darkness, 'Pirbaba' wakes up. People believe the 'Pir'(saint) walks along on the lighten path. Stones on the path are his footsteps. Spirit of Hazrat Sheikh Shahabuddin Ashiqallah walks every night on the same path under the trees. - Such like more stories of free spirits made this place venturesome. In daytime Sanjay Van is attracting with full of green lashes and songs of birds. Near Basant Kunj and Mehrauli it's a fine place to explore in South West Delhi. But in night, when the woods become silent, Sanjay Van turns into one of the most haunted places of Delhi.
Over the 10kms area you will find the ruin of Lal Kot. Later renamed as Qila Rai Pithora. The wall is believed still lamenting for the fate of the great Rajput King, Prithviraj Chauhan. But the Muslim cremation ground after Lal Kot probably most mysterious place in there. Mainly poor children were buried under those graves. At very night they awake from their sleep. Their screams, laughs and crawls under those graves break the silence of the night. Sanjay Van becomes then an unknown world of phantom existences.
Numbers of Majaars remembering those saints, resting in peace there. Some of them roams there when Sanjay Van becomes far away from the living world. There is a nice story about the Pir Hazrat Sheikh Shahabuddin Ashiqallah who walks on his path to shrine daily.

Hazrat Sheikh Shahabuddin Ashiqallah and his father Abdal Baba

They are among those Sufi saints who first came in Delhi. One day in Abdal Baba's death anniversary, his son Hazrat Sheikh Shahabuddin Ashiqallah arranged a feast for people. Where the food was inadequate for everyone. But the calm saint covered all food containers with a cloth. When he removed it there were plenty of food. Even after 700 years of his death people believe the Pir still walks every night there. Darga offers free foods, remembering that magical day.
