Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi (RA) arrived from Baghdad Shareef in the middle of the 17th Century (450 years back) and lived on the site of what is now better known as the Mount Road Dargah. In life, Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi (RA) is said to have had great healing powers. When he died, he was buried next to his house and here his family raised the Dargah Shareef. And to it have flocked the sick over the years, seeking the benefits of healing from his spirit.
When a British engineer in the past ordered the shrine to be demolished for road-widening, his workmen refused to proceed with the work when, at the first attempt at excavation around the building, blood spurted from the soil. When the engineer forced them to resume work, he collapsed - dropped dead, say some - the moment trenching began again.
It is the faith in Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi (RA) that draws people of all faiths to the Dargah Shareef every Thursday, seeking assurances of good health, answers to their prayers and the blessings of the holy.
This is the most famous Makham of all Chennai Dargahs and attracts people of all faith from all walks of life including music director, A.R. Rahman, who visits every Thursday, Arcot Prince, High Court Chief Justice and various famous icons of various industries.
