ChillaBabaSheikhFarid_Ban1The 12th-century Sufi saint Sheikh Farid is said to have meditated here for 40 days, and the Tilla Baba Sheikh Farid is a monument built to mark that spot. The small, white and green domed structure particularly attracts pilgrims on Thursdays. However, on any day of the week, visitors are greeted by beautifully sung verses from the Granth Sahib, which includes much of Sheikh Farid’s poetry, and the customary langar (community kitchen). Some of the personal belongings of the mystic are preserved here. They include a piece of wood on which he wiped his hands, and the basket he was said to have been forced to carry to help construct the fort of Faridkot.
