The Minara Masjid in Mohammad Ali Road, Mumbai is the centre of activity during the holy month of Ramzan.

The famous Suleman Usman Mithaiwala is situated at the front door of the mosque and a lane called Khau Galli is situated just next to it which is open till Saheri or dawn. These eateris attract thousands of people throughout the nights of Ramzan.

Rediff.com's Akhtar Sheikh captures the festivities...
