Eid-el-Kabir: Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II leads ancient Durbar festival in Kano
As part of the activities to mark the Eid-el-Kabir, the Kano Emirate Council on Monday held the traditional Hawan Daushe Durbar celebrations in Kano.
The event which attracted several expatriates living in Nigeria held at the outer court of the Emir of Palace in Kano. The durbar attracted thousands of the city’s residents and it brought out the rich cultural history of the Kano emirate.
According to historians at the event, Hawan Daushe Durbar was introduced to the emirate in the 1400s during the reign of Muhammadu Rumfa.
During the durbar, the emir rides on horseback while receiving homage from all the District heads in the emirate.
