Darul Shifa – Alawa-e-Sartauq Mubarak

Alawa-e-Sartauq Mubarak  is one of the most famous ashoor khana in Hyderabad. It is situated in Darulshifa area and named after the great Unani Hospital of the Qutub Shahi period.

Located on the Southern side of the Darul Shifa, this building was constructed by the Seventh Nizam – Osman Ali Khan, Asaf Jah VII.

This place is very special for the Shia community in Hyderabad. After the tragedy of Kerbala, Imam Zain al Abideen was taken prisoner by the army. The shackle he was wearing during that time is preserved here.

During the month of Ashura (when Muharram is observed), a lot of mourners gather here for this Majlis.

We have been there several times during our Photowalks in Hyderabad.
