Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan was a Hindustani classical vocalist, from the Patiala Gharana. Bade Ghulam Ali Khan was born in Kasur, a small town near Lahore, Pakistan. In 1957, with the help of Bombay Chief Minister Morarji Desai, he acquired Indian citizenship and moved to a bungalow at Malabar Hill in Mumbai. He lived at various times in Lahore, Bombay, Calcutta, and Hyderabad.
Ustadji came to Hyderabad because of Nawab Moin-Ud-Dowla Bahadur, who heard him sing on the radio and sent
someone to Pakistan for him. Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan came to Hyderabad and stayed for a very long time.
It was his wish to be buried here. His grave ( Mazhar) is located at Daira Mir Momin in Hari Bowli, Charminar, Hyderabad.
