Magahar (Sant Kabir Chaura)

The enlightened master, Kabir left his body in Maghar in Januanry, 1518, Magh Shukl Ekadashi according to the Hindu calendar in Vikram Samvat 1575. He was loved equally by Muslims and Hindus, and on his death both a mazaar (tomb) and samadhi were built by the Muslims and Hindus respectively. His mazaar and samadhi stand side by side. An annual festival is held here on Makar Sankranti 14th January. Kabir chose Maghar above Kashi because as an enlightened soul he wanted to dispel the myth that anyone breathing his last in Magahar is born a donkey in his next life.
