A large Deg used
for preparing free
food (Langar) for
the people
attending the Urs
and for the poor. A
fire is lit
underneath to cook
vast amounts of
food. It is situated
behind the Shrine
of Nawob Gudri
Shah Baba on the
Chilla Sharif, a hill
overlooking the
beautiful Ana
Sagar lake
constructed by the
Mughal Emperors.
In the shrine of
Khawaja Muinuddin
Hasan Chishti there
are two very much
larger Degs that
feed the half million
or so people who
attend the Urs of
the great saint
every year.
