The present study aimed at evaluating the air Microflora on the premises of
Dargah and nearby areas during urs fair. This research conducted with the use of Colony
Counter. The analysis revealed that during the fair, increase in human activity results in
pollution of soil, water and air. This enhances the growth of microbes during the fair.
Serratia and V.cholera was reported as least abundant bacteria. The highest count of the
studied microorganisms was determined at Site III Kamani Gate, located between the
Jhalara and Andarkot. The concentration of microorganisms was recorded before (in
Sept.) during (in Oct.) and after the fair (in Nov.).The studies showed that most of the
bacterial and fungal species were common between the months, but some additional
species reported in the air samples of October and November.
