Pakistan

An Urs is a death anniversary of a Sufi saint and such commemorations take place all over Pakistan throughout the year at each saint’s shrine or tomb. The exciting thing about these fascinatingly beautiful events is the fervor in which they’re celebrated. For 3-4 days, pilgrims come from all over the country to pay respects. But the event is also filled with dhamal, (Sufi-meditative dance), qawwali performances, bazaars, and then some. One of the most festive and zealous Urs celebrations in the country takes place every April at the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan.
