MURSHAD BAGH - THE DARGAH OF MURSHAD BAWA

MURSHAD BAGH - THE DARGAH OF MURSHAD BAWA

The Mira Darwaja (gate) leads to the dargah or the tomb of great Sufi Saint Murshad Bawa. Alongside it lie the dargahs of Sufi Saint Anwar Kaji and that of Oliya Mastfakir Amirbapu.



Every year the area comes alive on the eve of Kartaki Purnima with a traditional "Urs", or fair, held in commemoration of Saint Murshad Bawa. This festival sees grand celebrations in both the Hindu and Muslim communities and communal unity.
