The Valley of Saints is located in Khuldabad, a town in the Aurangabad district of Maharashtra, India. Several Sufi saints of the Chishti Order chose to reside in Khuldabad in the 14th century. The dargah of Moinuddin Chishti, and the tomb of the last great Mughal emperor Aurangzeb are located here. The valley also has the dargah of the Sufi saint Muntajib al-Din, known best by his epithet Zar Zari Zar Baksh, who migrated to this area in the 14th century at the request of his teacher, Nizamuddin Auliya of Delhi.
