Al Khizr, The Green One is associated with the Water of Life. Al Khizr is also known as the King of the Sea and believed to safeguard travellers. Famous in Sri Lanka, Sindh, Iran and Turkey, this mystical figure is revered by different names having performed miracles, appearing at several waterbody locations. Some celebrate Hıdırellez, which is the meeting of Khizr and Elias on the 5, 6 May annually while the Sindhi community celebrate Chahilo Sahib Festival in the month of July – August. Others remember Al Khizr while spending some time at sea in prayer during the 2nd lunar month of the Islamic Calendar, which is called Safar.
