Description

The patron saint of this popular dargah, Muntajib al-Din, known best by his epithet Zar Zari Zar Baksh, is said to have come to this area of the Deccan in the fourteenth century at the request of his teacher, Nizamuddin Awliya of Delhi. The Zar Zari Zar Baksh Dargah in Khuldabad attracts hundreds of pilgrims each year for ordinary rituals such as seeking the blessings of prayer at a holy place. But to commemorate the urs, or death anniversary, of the saint, thousands of pilgrims travel great distances to participate in this celebration which is immediately followed by the commemoration of the death of the Prophet Muhammad.
