Eid-i-Milad, the birthday of Prophet Muhammad, was today celebrated across Kashmir with people thronging the Hazratbal Shrine, which houses a relic of the prophet, to offer prayers.
People from far-flung areas of the Kashmir region had reached the shrine last night to offer the morning and afternoon prayers, officials said.
The relic was also displayed by its custodian after the prayers.
The Muslim Auqaf Trust, which manages affairs of the shrine, had made arrangements for the people visiting Hazratbal.
Milad processions were taken out in several parts of the valley, the officials said, adding that no untoward incidents were reported.
The Hazratbal Shrine and several other mosques were decorated and illuminated with florescent lights while special religious flags were hoisted atop some buildings and vehicles to mark the occasion.
