Every year, the Urs celebrations are attended by two to three lakh devotees from Telangana, Maharashtra and Karnataka States, but due to Covid-19 pandemic this year, there is a decline in the number of devotees visiting the place where huge number of Hindu devotees visit and take part in the festivities as a symbol for Ganga Jamuna Tehzeeb.
The celebrations usually start with the procession of ‘Urs-e-Shareef’ carrying sandal on camel and horse by the ancestral priest from Jalalpur village to the dargah situated atop a hillock. Revenue and Wakf Board officials made all the arrangements for the devotees including road connectivity and drinking water facility.
