Situated in the Faridabad district of Haryana, the symbolic shrine of Chote Bade Sarkar has been serving as a cynosure of communal harmony for generations. People of all caste and communities visit the shrine to pay their obeisance to both the Sufi saints, Bade Sarkar and Chote Sarkar and seek their blessings. The shrine is believed to have healing powers and therefore a number of people suffering from different medical problems can be seen visiting the shrine. Even though the actual shrine of Bade Sarkar and Chote Sarkar is located in the Badaun district of northern Uttar Pradesh state, the symbolic shrine of the saints in Faridabad is also no less popular. Built around hundred years ago, the shrine is even visited by people from faraway places irrespective of faith. Even the caretaker of the shrine is a Hindu man whose family has been taking care of it for generations. Bade Sarkar was born in Bukhara in 1188 and left the material world in Badaun in 1230. Like many other Sufi saints before him, he too traced his lineage from the family of Hazrat Muhammad. Chote Sarkar, on the other hand, was his most famous disciple and spiritual successor. Both the brothers throughout their life propagated the message of peace and brotherhood and are thus revered by all communities till date.
