The dargah was built in 1431 by a wealthy Muslim merchant and saint named Haji Ali who renounced all his wordly possessions before making a pilgrimage to Makkah. Legend has it that Haji Ali died on his way to Makkah and his body, in its casket, floated back to Mumbai. However, some believe that Haji Ali drowned at the place where the dargah stands today.
As many as 40,000 pilgrims visit the shrine on Thursdays and Fridays. Non-Muslims are also permitted to walk on the causeway and into the Masjid compound. The only area out of bounds for non-Muslims is the sanctum sanctorum of the Masjid itself
