OMG: Hindus and Muslims offer prayers under the same roof

Muslims and Hindus praying together may seem like a scene from Manmohan Desai’s film. However, Rajasthan’s Alwar district has a worship house where people of both the religions come under one roof to pray.

The integrated shrine of Sayyed Darbar and Sankat Mochan Vir Hanuman Mandir atop the Moti Doongri Hill is where followers of both Hinduism and Islam have been coming together for ages to pray.

What’s more intriguing is that the two religious structures don’t even have a wall separating them.

On Thursdays, soon after the bhajans (Hindu devotional songs), the same loudspeaker and musical instruments are used for Qawwali’s (songs praising Allah).

Seems unbelievable but that’s the truth.
