Owing to the miraculous powers of healing, the honorific of “Mira Datar” came to be added to the name of Hazrat Sayyad Ali. The word, “Mira” means “The Brave One, ” and “Datar” (or Daata) means “Giver” or “Bestower”. This shrine is known for driving off evil forces and healing the ones, especially the women who are possessed by demons and evil Jinns. .


Over the centuries, the mentally affected or "possessed" Indian women have found a sanctuary here. The fame of this Dargah is spread far and wide and people of all religions, caste and creed visit the shrine round the year with offerings of ‘Chaadar’ and for fulfilment of their vows. Fragrance of roses and incense greet the visitors' nostrils. Roses, too, are offered at the shrine. The annual ‘Urs’ is held on 29th of Muharram every year.

The Dargah is in a fort like structure and at the top of the fort is DADI MAA KI CHAKKI.
(Handdriven Flour grinding Mill)..

Earlier the Chakki was present physically but due to the increaze in number of Zayreens the Small chakki was removed and a Gumbad was constructed.. If anyone has an evil spirit in him he has to take 7 rounds of the Chakki and his Evil spirit will be removed. Also there is Chillah Mubarak of Dadi Amma and Rasti Amma (real mother of Hz.
