The World Federation is pleased to launch our third Khoja Heritage Tour as part of our Khoja Heritage Project in partnership with our regional federations for everyone to participate in our community.
This trip gives our community members the opportunity to visit key historic locations in India, which are significant to our culture and community.
We plan on taking all the participants on a 10-day tour across the following incredible cities Mumabi, Amerli, Bhavnagar, Bhuj, Mandvi, Kera and Ahmedabad.
Visiting these historical cities will allow the participants to follow the footsteps of our ancestors and give the participants a deeper understanding of the origins of our Khoja community and the chance to learn more about our history.
Those on the trip will have the opportunity to visit the shrines of Pir Gulamali Shah and Pir Dadu in Kera and Bhuj, as well see the three historic buildings representing the three Khoja strands in Palagali area of Mumbai.
This was the beginning of a journey for the Khoja Shia Ithna Asheri Community, as it contained its faith in the crucible of Khoja culture. As a testament to that beginning, visitors will be able to sit in the very first madrasa called the Madrasa of Mulla Qadar Husayn in Mumbai.
