Hazrath Ali Murad Saheb (R.A) Darga (Astana-e-Muradia) Kadapa is an example of the communal harmony preached by great saints and sages in ancient days. Pilgrims comes Monday, Thursday and Friday, scores of pilgrims cutting across religious faiths, throng the nearly 250-year-old shrine seeking blessings of saints. Followers of the dargah believe that whenever there is an outbreak of cholera in Kadapa town, residents use to consider Hazrath Ali Murad Saheb Qibla as their savior and Golden Angel from God to protect them and special prayers were conducted at his shrine(reading his written Dua “Dua-e-Dafiyul bala wal-wabaa) and carrying Flower Chandani. In addition, wish that one makes at the shrine is always fulfilled. A large number of Hindus, Muslims and people of different faiths are disciples of the shrine. The family’s descendants identify themselves with a Green mix with saffron cap because the saint belongs to family of Peeran – e - Peer Hazrath Ghouse Azam Dastagir R.A (Baghdad Iraq) and Hazrath Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Sanjeri R.

Astana-e-Muradia Darga and its graveyard belongs to his own family graveyard from the time of his great grandfather Hazrath Noorullah Basha Saheb R.A.
