Did you know that Poet Momin Khan Momin was born in Delhi and his grave lies near Maulana Azad Medical College, Delhi ?

Momin’s grave  today forms part of the enclosed precincts of the mosque surrounding the Dargah of Shah Waliullah at one end of the Mehndiyaan graveyard inside the campus of Maulana Azad Medical College in New Delhi. It is well-preserved and on a tombstone erected on it some decades ago are inscribed some of his better-known couplets.
