Ruhaniyat – The Oldest and Largest Music Festival

 

Ruhaniyat, the oldest and the largest music festival of its kind is best described as a unique pilgrimage, the call of the soul that enlivens centuries of spiritual wisdom. The immortal works of great mystics are brought to life by mostly unheard of but immensely talented carriers of living traditions from remote parts of the country. Now for the 14th consecutive year the seekers of joy, spiritual wisdom, enchanting music and unheard of living traditions will be delighted to assemble yet again for Ruhaniyat.
