Tamim ibn Zayd al-Ansari (Arabic: تميم بن زيد الأنصاري) was a Muslim saint (Walī) whose dargah (shrine) is located in Kovalam, Tamil Nadu, India which is 30 km from Chennai. Al-Ansari was born in the city of Medina, Saudi Arabia and is a Sahabi (companion of the Islamic prophet Muhammad). He visited the Asian continent during the caliphate of Umar ibn al-Khattab and stayed in Sindh for 18 years.
The first Thursday after the first full moon of each month is a day of devotion. Though the dargah is open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., some devotees spend the night there.
