Muharram Video - Muharram Tazia Procession in Jaipur:- Muharram is the first month of Islamic calender. Muharram is one of the most sacred months after Ramadan. Muslims generally fast during Muharram month. Ashura or 10th day of Muharram is very important for Muslims, specially Shia Muslims.
Tazia processions held in India in the month of Muharram. Tazia are miniature mausoleums of Karbala, generally made of coloured paper, bamboo, tin foil, mica and glass.
Thousands of tazia in various shapes and sizes are fashioned every year for the months of mourning of Muharram. They are carried in processions and may be buried at the end of Ashura.
Tazia procession ritual is very old tradition in Jaipur (India). Even Hindus also participate in Tazia procession in large number and believe to pass beneath Tazia is sacred.
