The shrine and tomb is built in memory of  Hazrath Sufi Shaheed and Sayyed Hassan Sakaf Halramir who came from Persia 366 years ago to give religious discourses and devoted their life to the service and  help the poor.

There is an annual Urus held at this place which goes on for around eight days and more than two lakh devotees from all religion across the state come here to participate and get blessings from the Sufi saints.

Women are denied entry into the Darga and separate arrangements are made to enable them to offer prayers. The Yemmemadu mosque also runs an Arabic Madrassa and an  orphanage.
