The dargah or grave of the Persian Sufi saint, Qutbuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki
is located in Mehrauli. He lived and preached during Iltutmish
's reign and died in 1230. He was called Kaki after the little kakis (cakes) that were said to be his staple diet during a 40-days' fast.
The grave of Khwaja Sahib is a simple mound of earth but it lies beneath a newly-built marble-and-mirror studded domed pavilion. It is open only to men and women can catch a glimpse of the hallowed tomb from behind marble jali screens. An adjacent marble enclosure houses the marble graves of Mughal emperors Bahadur Shah I
(1707-1712), Shah Alain 11(1759-1806) and Akbar II (1806-1837).
A little to the left of the dargah's Ajmeri Gate is a small mosque, Moti Masjid, built by Aurangzeb
's son, Bahadur Shah I, who modelled this chapel on his father's more elaborate Moti Masjid within the Red Fort
