His mausoleum, popularly known as Data Durbar (i.e. the court of the one who gives), is located in the center of Lahore, Pakistan.
Thousands of Muslims visit the Data Darbar everyday. Culturally and religiously, people of Lahore and of the Punjab have become emotionally dependent on the shrine. Food stalls, flower sellers and numerous beggars are dependent on Shrine visitors.
On special occasions, the shrine is lit up with lights, dinner is prepared for hundreds of people.
Within the boundary of shrine complex, devout Muslims from all walks of life recite the Qur’an and pay tributes (salawaat) to Prophet Muhammad. A notable distinguishing feature is that around the shrine the Quran is read incessantly, around the clock, as visitors come in at all hours of the day and the night. The fact that there is never a single minute when the Quran is not recited by someone makes this one of those special religious places where the Quran is always “alive”, which is a sign and proof that the Data Darbar is a special place of divine blessing and mercy.
It has a been a practice of Sufi saints coming to the South Asia to first visit the shrine of Hazrat Usman Ali Hujwiri. Hazrat Khwaja Muinuddin Chishti first came to Lahore to pay his respects at Data Ganj-Bakhsh upon his arriving in the subcontinent where he spent quite some time in meditation and prayer before reaching enlightenment. There he was directed to settle in Ajmer Sharif and commence his spiritual mission to go further east and preach into India. Hazrat Moinuddin Chishti paid homage to Hazrat Usman Ali Hujwiri in the following words:
Ganj Bakhsh-e faiz-e aalam, mazhar-e Nur-i Khuda
Naqisaan ra pir-e kaamil, kaamilaan ra rahnuma
Ganj Bakhsh is a manifestation of the Light of God for the people
A perfect guide unto the imperfect ones and a guide unto the perfect ones
