This wizened old tree can be found at a small Sufi tomb at Vijay Mandal once the palace of the Tughlak kings, but now a mostly-forgotten ruin hiding away in south Delhi.
At the tomb of the Sufi saint Hazrat Khwaja Nasiruddin Mahmood ‘Chiragh Delhi’, this old khirni tree amidst the white marble and green tapestries of the mosque is said to be planted ‘by his own hands’ before his death in 1356 AD (755 after Hijra).
A young Sathya Sai Baba performed a miracle when he made this tree produce many different kinds of fruit, in his early days as a holy guru.
