Walk: Understanding the spirit of Muharram in Royapettah / Triplicane – Aug. 7, 2022

Conducted by Kombai S Anwar.

Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar and is considered the second holiest month after Ramadan. It is well known for its historical significance and mourning for the Shahadat (martyrdom) of Ḥusayn ibn Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad. Muslims begin mourning from the first night of Muharram and continue for ten nights, climaxing on the 10th of Muharram, known as the Day of Ashura. The heritage walk takes you to the Ashur Khanas and the streets of Royapettah, giving you an insight into the centuries-old tradition in Madras.
