Islamabad: Celebrations started Thursday in Sehwan Sharif, marking the annual Urs of Sufi saint Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalandar.

Thousands have thronged to his shrine for the three-day festivities celebrating his life, and the lanes and streets of Sehwan were packed with devotees, singing and dancing, in praise of the saint.

A devotional dance, widely known as 'dhamal', is a feature of the annual Urs.

Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, whose real name was Syed Muhammad Usman was born in 1177 AD in Marwand, Iran. He reportedly stayed in Sehwan for six years and is believed to have performed several miracles. He reportedly died at the age of 97.

The PIA was operating special flights for the three-day celebrations, for the convenience of those travelling to Sehwan. Additional railway services were also offered during the three-day period.
