To the extreme right, lies Hazrat Khwaja Syed Nizamuddin Auliyawho is probably one of the greatest Sufi saints of all times. His disciple, Amir Khusrau lies to the extreme left under the white dome-like structure. Amir Khusrau was one of the pioneers of Urdu poetry and an institution in himself. Khusrau was very influential in fanning the flames of Jahan Ara's love for poetry. She is buried between them in carved marble enclosure. It is perhaps poetic justice that in death, she was in her rightful place between the greats.
