Nagore is located 4 Km north of Nagapattinam. The postmark depicts the golden dome and two of the five minarets. A Dargah is a Sufi shrine built over the grave of a revered religious figure, often a Sufi saint. The term is derived from a Persian word which can mean, among other uses, "portal" or "threshold". Many Muslims believe that dargahs are portals by which they can invoke the deceased saint's intercession and blessing. The Dargah in Nagore is of 16th Century saint, Hazrat SYED SHAHUL HAMEED QADIRI ( QADIRI ) QADIR WALI, attracts mllions of pilgrims to this land irrespective of caste, creed and religion. The 14-day Kandhuri Urs (also spelled Kandoori or Kandhoori) festival, dedicated to the saint, is held there annually, during when the shrine is illuminated with candles or strings of electric lights.
