Every year devotees observe the death anniversary of Sultan-ul-Arifeen Sultan Bahoo. Moreover its date according to Islamic calendar is 1st Thursday of Jumada ath-thani. Of course people come from far off places to join the celebrations because of their love for the great Saint.
Sultan Bahoo extremely loved the People of Cloak (Ahl al-Bayt/Panjtan Pak). Therefore he would hold commemoration ceremonies for the martyrs of Karbala every year in Muharram from 1st to 10th. This tradition continues to date. As a result thousands of pilgrims visit the shrine during the first ten days of Muharram. While in the last three days their number reaches to lacs. Accordingly devotees come forth twice every year to two vast congregations at Sultan Bahoo’s shrine. On these occasions a lot of people are blessed.
