Peer Budan Ali Shah Dargah in Jammu draws people of all faiths and religions

The 'dargah' of Peer Budan Ali Shah or Peer Baba as it is known, is the perfect example of communal harmony in Jammu and Kashmir.

People of all religion throng this shrine and get blessings.

Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs come to this 'dargah' in large number and pray.

There is a belief that the 'dargah' protects people of this city from mishaps and evil spirits.

The shrine is located in the outskirts of Jammu city at a distance of about 8 Kilometres towards the aerodrome at Satwari.

Baba Budan Shah was born at Talwandi in Punjab, and it is said that another shrine of this Peer is located at Anandpur Sahib in Punjab.

In spite of being the 'dargah' of a Muslim saint, Hindus and Sikh devotees who flock this religious place particularly on Thursdays are far greater in number than the Muslim followers.

The devotees of Peer Baba have many interesting stories to share.
