Devotees offer stone for wish Fulfillment - Khambhalia

For our fulfillment of wishes, we offer many things to our gods. Like coconut, flowers, holy clothes etc.

In what could be most amazing offering, devotees are offering  Stones at a mausoleum in near Khambhalia.
The 400-year-old tomb of Ashaba Pir is famous for this extraordinary tradition.

Here devotees come to cure their illness and illness of their animals too, devotees can offer a minimum seven stones and a maximum of truckload of stones. It is said that before around 400 years, as there was nothing to be offered, people started offering stones and hence the tradition started.

This tomb is located at seven kilometers from Khambalia.
