The Famous Taaziya Of Chiniot
This Taziya was damaged in 1989. Then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif came here when Chiniot was hit by flood. The president of our organization Syed Ehsan Ali Shah met him and apprised him on the security situation of the city. He also told him that the Taziya had been damaged
PM gave him Rs 100,000 for the repair work. Then we made a new Taziya, because the old one had been burned that was when this one was made. It’s around 35-ft tall And within one year, we made a completely new one, by the blessings of Ahle Bayt.
These are the bamboos with which Taziya is lifted. Some 50 people carry the Taziya, but that’s just a number. It’s actually the angels who carry it
This is the dome of the throne, its wood was also damage. The old one had very little wood carving on it,We have done a lot of work on the new one. This is the crown; it was also damaged. This here is the inner door. These are our tools that we use to make this Taziya.
