Data Darbar Lahore

Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh (Hazrat Ali Hajvery) was a Persian Sufi saint and scholar during the 11th century. He was born in 990 AD in Ghazni, Afghanistan and died in Lahore, Pakistan in 1072 AD. His mausoleum, know as Data Darbar (Data Shrine), is located in Lahore near the junction of the Lower Mall and the Circular Road. Thousands of Muslims visit the Data Darbar everyday, to offer Fatiha and pay him tributes. His urs (death anniversary) is held on 18-20 Safar (2nd Islamic Month) and is attended by thousands of pilgrims. He is the author of many books including his famous book Kashf-al-Mahjub (Urdu: کشفُ المحجوب).

We are also devoting days and holidays for our Muslim brothers, and Nov 16 is just newly declared public non-working holiday. And we like that.

Thanks Andrea or your comment and concern. I think we all should respect each other's religions and should work together, irrespective of religion, to make this world, a peaceful world.

Thanks Joan for the feedback. I'm wonder at the devotion of these people, who take the time to visit the tomb and spend a lot of time there in this busy life.
