D

Sheikh Salim Chishti

Sheikh Salim Chishti was a great saint of Chishti silsilah. Sheikh Salim Chishti's tomb was originally built with red sandstone but later it was converted into marble mausoleum by Akbar. Akbar constructed this mausoleum to pay his respect to Sheikh Salim Chishti because he blessed Akbar for being the father of a son. After that Jahangir was born and on his name he called him Salim.
