The Muharram festival is celebrated for 10 days. For 8 days the Mullah
sits besides the peeras and worship them reciting passages from Holy Koran.
Many among the Hindus also offer worship at the shrine. They take a small
quantity of sugar along with them and hand it over to the Mullah who after
chanting scriptures returns it as prasadam to those who offered it. On
the ninth day groups of young men from Muslims, Bedas, Agasas, Kurubas
and other lower communities start dancing in front of the peeras till
the evening of the next day to the beating of country drums. On the evening
of the tenth day the peeras are ceremoniously removed and they are taken
through in the main streets in a procession and later on immersed in a
well. Muslim members sing in mournful tone and return home.
The tombs of former Jagirdar and his wife is situated
in the village Sarjapur which are held in reverence by Muslims and the
annual Urs is held during Muharram.
