Images from Data Saheb’s Shrine

Saw this newsitem today – “Data Sahib’s 963rd urs concludes: Around 500,000 attend final prayers”. The news item reported that around 0.9 million visited the shrine on Saturday. The saint left this world nine centuries ago.

During my recent visit the Urs preparations were underway. I captured a few images.  First the shrine at the night

The devotees inside

And some people pray to God while standing before the shrine

Above – roses on the place where Khawaja Muinuddin Chishti meditated. 

A devotee at the meditation spot. The background shows the famous verse for Imam Hussain – Shah Ast Hussain. Translation of these Persian lines can be found here.
