Kichocha Sharif is the dargah (mausoleum) of famous Sufi saint Sayyad Mukhdum Shah Ashraf Jahangir Samnani (a city of Iran), who came here during the reign of Firoz Shah Tughlak. The dargah is surrounded by a circular pond, which is called 'Neer Sharif'. In the middle of this pond lies a 40 feet high fort like circular boundary wall and the main dargah is situated within it. This place gives the appearance of a small island. 50-60 thousand visitors pay homage here every day. An annual Urs is held here on 26th, 27th & 28th day of Moharram, which draws more than six lakh people to this shrine. This place has close association with Govind Sahib (a temple located at about 17 km from here). People after visiting Kichaucha Sharif dargah often go to Govind Sahib temple to worship. When fair at this dargah comes to an end, the fair at Govind Sahib begins. Both the places present an excellent example of communal harmony.
