Urs of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti

 
Urs of Khawaja Moinuddin Chishti at Ajmer is the biggest attraction for the Muslims. Over two lakh Muslims assemble here to pay homage to the memory of the saint at his dargah (mausoleum). The localities around the dargah present  gay spectacle on this occasion. Many devotees arrange feasts, known as Niyaz for the poor. Rich among the devotees arrange qawwalis and recitations of Milad Sharif. During the qawwalis, many spectators go into trance, quivering and moving their bodies briskly, repeating the refrain of the qawwalis along with qawwals. This state of trance is known as hal and often scores of people are affected by it.

Pilgrims make rich offerings at the holy spot where the Khwaja is entombed in the dargah. The Khwaja is believed to possess miraculous powers and can ensure the birth of a son, cure ailments, ward off evil spirits and bring good luck. From the architectural point of view the dargah is unique.
