This paper is an attempt to understand and analyse the migration through the Indian Ocean basin by the Hadrami Sayyids from Hadramawt in Yemen. The consequent of the diaspora thus undertaken are diverse leading to many socio-cultural, economic and also to some extent political alterations in the place of migration as well as back at homeland. Genealogy has been one of the most distinct and essential element in the whole passage of the diaspora that enabled the itinerants to absorb in the local set up and predisposed them in a cosmopolitan character. Moreover the Alawi Sufi Way also has a greater say in the whole of the state of migration connecting the site of origin from the graves of Tarim, diaspora and the point of destination back at the graves in Tarim. This paper should be, in its essence, read as a review of the Graves of Tarim by Ho Engseng.
