The 14-day Kandhuri Urs (also spelled Kandoori or Kandhoori), dedicated to the saint, is held there annually.  Although dedicated to a Muslim saint, the dargah' s rituals and architecture are influenced by Hinduism, and the area is characterized by largely peaceful coexistence between its Muslim and Hindu populations. In the immediate aftermath of the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the dargah sheltered and fed thousands of Hindu tsunami survivors, and buried the bodies of more than 300 Hindus killed in the tsunami in its graveyard. A prominent 5-acre (20,000 m2) dargah (Muslim shrine) dedicated to the 16th-century saint Nagore Andavar (literally "the Lord (aandavar) of Nagore"; also popularly called Meeran Sahib or Qadir Wali) is located there, and serves as a pilgrim center.
