With Eid-ul-Azha right around the corner, Muslims all over the world are preparing for the festive occasion. It’s a time when you can hear the ‘Baa’s of sheep and the ‘moo’s of cows as you drive through the city, and probably even see a few!
Preparations for Eid usually start at least a week before the three-day holiday. Stalls stocked with colorful outfits and glitzy accessories are set up everywhere. The streets are packed with women laden with shopping bags as they purchase clothes, accessories and food for Eid. Businesses also buy into the hype, and stock their outlets with plenty of discounted stuff for sale.
You can spend hours in the festive marketplaces, though some prefer to do distance shopping through an online selling platform.
Eid-ul-Azha is a very vibrant and colorful affair. Here are some images that show the essence and spirit of this widely celebrated festival:
