The location is inside Fatehpur. One needs to remove the footwear while entering Fatehpur and keep them out at Rs.5 per pair. You can also buy "Chaddar" and Threads (to tie a wishing knot) near this tomb.

I have visited in a normal day, so no idea about the crowd on the day of Eid. But the place is in a remote area, and there should be no problem of being much crowded.
