Over the last several days, hundreds of trucks have brought thousands of worshippers to Wangath for the annual Urs and to pay reverence at the shrine, which is located at the foot of a mountain in a picturesque environment.

The woodland that surrounds the shrine is the site of several annual religious celebrations.

On the last day of the Urs, worshippers gathered together to pray for the well-being of all the people in Jammu and Kashmir.
