Hidden in a similar yard between the rail -tracks is a 900 year old shrine – the final resting place of sufi saint Shah Syed Qayamuddin popularly known as mazar (~maussaleum) of Khamman Peer Baba. It is a quiet place within a busy railway yard for most of the week. However, devotees throng the place on Thursdays and most of them get what they ask for.

It is claimed that the British engineers laid down the rail tracks over the structure but were forced to change the rail tracks due to a series of unfortunate accidents and restore the mazar.

Words ~ 100
Khamman Peer ki mazar is situated in Charbagh Railway complex of Lucknow in north India.
