Ajmer: Nearly 500 pilgrims from Pakistan will participate in the 798th Urs of Sufi saint Hajarat Khawaja Moinuddeen Chisty at Ajmer in the second week of June, officials said today.
A special train carrying the pilgrims from across the border will reach Ajmer on June 16 to paid obeisance at the shrine, police said here.
The 798th Urs will start on 14th or 15th June after rising of the moon.
Last year, 300 pilgrims from Pakistan paid obeisance at the tomb on the occasion of 797 Urs and prayed for peace and amity between India and their country.
