The Shrine of Data Ganj Bakhsh
This event takes place every Thursday. The venue is the shrine of a great and arguably the most celebrated Sufi Saint of Pakistan - Data Ganj Bakhsh. His real name was Ali Hajvery and he came to the sub-continent around the 11th Century. Thursday is thought to be a special day in Islam when people should pray and seek forgiveness from Allah. In Pakistan, a lot of people visit these shrines, in the belief that the saints can speak to God on their behalf. Data Ganj is one of these saints and large crowds throng to his shrine to pray for him. Food is distributed amongst the poor and from two till five in the evening, Qawwalis(traditional songs) are sung.
