Stop At: Hajrat Kamar Ali Durvesh Dargah, Khed Shivapur, Maharashtra 412205, India

We visit a 700 year old Dargah at Khedshivapur. It is beautifully built with white makrana marble with text from the Holy Quran. This dargah is associated with a mystery of a levitating stone. Legend has it that 11 people can place one finger each below the stone, shout the name of Hazarat Kamar Ali Darvesh and lift the stone. Up it goes, flying 10 to 11 feet into the air! More on this during the visit.
