The saint, who did not accept any gifts, asked Hyder Ali to build a mosque there. Work on the mosque began in and was completed in by his son Tipu Sultan. A stone inscription at the tomb states that Hazrat Tawakkal Mastan preached Islam and passed away in There is another version to the story, though. According to that version, Tawakkal Mastan, also known by the name Mirza Baig, came to Bangalore from Iran many years ago. He traded in the famous Persian horses.
Later, he is said to have given up his trade and devoted all his time to religious pursuits. Around the same time, Hyder Ali wanted to expand and develop Bangalore. He brought people of the Thigala community from Tiruchinapalli, Arcot, Thanjavur, and Madurai to help him in this work. Among them was a scholar known for his philanthropic work, aptly called Dharmaraya.
Dharmaraya wanted Hyder Ali to build a temple and a math. In an interesting development, the two religious systems came together at one point in time, and the annual Karaga of Dharmaraya Swamy visiting Tawakkal Dargah became a tradition.
It is considered a sacrilege for the person carrying the Karaga to drop it. The story goes that during Tawakkal's time, one particular year, the person carrying the Karaga stopped at Tawakkal Mastan Dargah and asked for his blessings so that Karaga would not fall off his head.
Tawakkal blessed him and asked him to utter "Din, Din".
The tradition continues to this day and the Karaga-carriers visit the dargah three days prior to the Karaga puja begins. He visits the dargah on the day of the Karaga as well, with the Karaga on his head. When he arrives, the fateha, ritual is performed, after which the Karaga-carrier goes round the dargah thrice. He walks the first round, goes around on his knees on the second, and dances around the dargah on the third. After this, the caretaker of the dargah and the Karaga carrier exchange lemons.
The dargah is visited by scores of Hindus, Muslims, and Christians every day. An interesting tradition here is that some Marwaris and Gujaratis come to the dargah early in the morning and give away bread and idlis as breakfast for the poor. The Secretary of the trust that runs Hazrath Tawakkal Mastan Shah Dargah Mosque, Mohammed Nasrulla, says that the trust also involves itself in social and educational activities.
The HTM English School is adjacent to the dargah compound and has students who come from all communities. The headmistress of the school, Nagamani, says the school stands as a symbol of Hindu-Muslim amity. Ghousia Sarai, also run by the trust, was built in with the idea of supporting social causes. It conducts marriages of poor people and provides them financial aid.

The Tawakkal Mastan, in particular, has a legend which has a Hindu linkage as it is associated with a local Hindu festival called karaga. According to a popular folk legend, Tawakkal Mastan, a mason from Arabia while working in disguise as an ordinary coolie labour in the construction of Hyder Ali 's fort was trampled by a crowd during the karaga procession and fainted but was revived by some Hindu priests who applied kumkum vermilion powderwhich resulted in the healing of his wounds and recovery.
