The village of Bhitauli was founded by a religious scholar named Syed Daud. The tombs of the scholar and his granddaughter are found in the old graveyard of the village. However, even today men are forbidden from visiting the granddaughter’s tomb.
The village has a beautiful natural landscape and is surrounded by lovely gardens, ponds and large fields. The scholar was part of the prestigious Alvi family who over the years produced some of India’s most recognised poets and scholars.
