About the walk

Dar-ul-Shifa (‘the House of Health’), built by the founder of the Hyderabad Sultanate, Muhammed Quli Qutub Shahi more than 400 years ago in 1595, is the oldest shifakhana in Hyderabad. Though now more popularly known as the name of the locality in which it resides, it is home to places of worship, shrines, Unani medicine, and is situated at very close proximity to Purani Haveli and Hussaini Alam. 

Join us on this walk as we experience the oldest ashoorkhanas of Hyderabad, listening to stories, witnessing faith, beautiful architecture, unsung verses and culture with the region's centuries-old history. 

This guided tour is free.
