In the narrow bylanes of Secunderabad, around the Safilguda area, one can find a ramp taking one to the 300 steps that lead to Moula Ali dargah. The place is surrounded by monolithic rocks, once a common sight in the city.

The 400-yr-old dargah will be celebrating its patron saint, Hazrat Ali’s birthday on February 26. On this occasion, the dargah is being renovated. Though it’s not the only reason. The 400-yr-old dargah is slowly getting dilapidated and it requires maintenance to continue to draw people. The dargah caretakers are now looking for materials that match the original construction. Various groups will carry out processions on that day and a fest will be organized for three days starting March 2. On those days, one will get to see the handprint of Hazrat Ali, irrespective of their religion. On normal days, it can be seen by those who do namaz.

Hazrat Ali happens to be the paternal cousin of Prophet Mohammad who fought many battles on his behalf. During the time of the Quli Qutub Shah dynasty, a minister Yakoob got a dream wherein Hazrat Ali spoke of Moula Ali. Following this, Yakoob found the handprint of Hazrat Ali at Moula Ali and a dargah was built there in his honor. A life-size image of Hazrat Ali is also present in dargah that is shown to visitors on request.

People of all religions gather at this historic place to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets. The renovation work at the Moula Ali dargah is being carried out under the aegis of the Telangana government and Al Kausar Trust, a group of NRI donors.
