Nagaur Sufi Festival – February16 to 19, 2012

Standard

Poised in the middle of the majestic land of Rajasthan, the little known district town of Nagaur can be best described as a place where many historic eras coexist.

An enchanting amalgam of a splendid royal heritage and the spiritual fervor of the Sufi saints, Nagaur evolved into a city with a very special character, i.e. the core of its rich tradition. To bring alive and revive this rich tradition Mehrangarh Museum Trust. The festival features the exponents of rare living traditions of Sufi expressions from across India and beyond, at the magical fort of Nagaur Ahichhatragarh.
