Sonia Gandhi sends "Chadar" to Ajmer Sharif shrine

New Delhi , Sat, 04 Jun 2011 ANI

New Delhi, June 4 (ANI): Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Saturday sent a "Chadar" as an offering to Ajmer Sharif shrine on Saturday.


The Dargah of Khwaja Moin-ud-din Chisti is hosting the religious fair or "Urs" marking the 799th death anniversary of the Sufi saint that began on Friday.


Millions of devotees from all across the world visit the saint's shrine during the Urs ceremony.


Moin-ud-din Chisti is believed to have been born in 1142 AD. Since his ancestors belonged to a town named Chisti, people began calling him by that name.


Chisti, who preached tolerance and unity of all religions, died in Ajmer where his tomb has become a shrine for millions of people.


In 1236 AD, the saint entered his cell to pray in seclusion for six days, at the end of which he died. Since then Urs has been celebrated for six days every year.


It is believed that praying at the tomb of the saint fulfils a person's wishes. (ANI)
