Over 400 devotees from Pak arrive at Ajmer shrine

Ajmer: A delegation of over 400 devotees from Pakistan today arrived at the shrine of Khawaja Moinuddin Chisti here to pay their homage to the Sufi saint.

The devotees, accompanied by the officials of the Pakistani Embassy, reached Ajmer this morning by a special train to attend the 805th ‘Urs’ (death anniversary) of the saint.

They will offer ‘chaadar’ (sacred cloth) at the shrine on behalf of the Pakistan government.

The administration has made special security arrangements in the wake of the visit by devotees from the neighbouring country, District Magistrate Gaurav Goyal said.

They will stay put at the Central Girls School here, he said.

The devotees will leave Ajmer for Pakistan on April 8.
