About Chanderi

Mahma Shah Tomb,ChanderiLocated at the peak of Mahma Shah’s Tekri, a standalone hill to north-west of the town, the mausoleum is that of saint Hazrat Mahma Shah. An inscription dated to 1462 mentions that the mazaar is roofed by magnificent dome but this is no longer extant. On the first of every month the devotees of the saint come to the tomb to pray and offer chadars.

Near the mazaar is another mausoleum which incidentally belongs to the grandfather of the author’s grandfather.
