Bhitt Shah - A City of Shah Latif

The best time to visit the shrine of the famous mystic Sufi and poet Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai (1689-1752) is during his Urs which is held during the Islamic month of Saffar. In 2014 his Urs was held in the month of December.
The shrine is overflowing with followers during the Urs so much that there would be hardly any space to do something. If one needs to be absorbed fully into the spiritual energy of the place so it is better to visit it during normal days. And that is how I decided to go to Bhit Shah in January.
