Multan, Pakistan Multan - South Punjab

Multan, is a big city in the southwern part of Pakistani Punjab. Multan - South Punjab has Clock Tower in the downtown of city, shah Ruk ne Alam shrine is situated for Brelvi Muslims of Multan. Multan in the lower Punjab ot south Punjab, is claimed to be the oldest surviving city on the subcontinent, dating back some 4000 years. Once an important centre of Islam, it has since attracted more mystics, holy men and saints than you can shake a shalwar qamiz at. Today, Multan is dominated by their tombs and shrines, a fort that affords superlative views over the city, and one of the best bazaars in Pakistan - those not converted by Anita Roddick might like to snap up the skin potion, made from lizards, which is said to be an excellent revitaliser.

It's a 570km (353mi) trek down to Multan from Islamabad. Buses and minbuses descend on Multan from a variety of destinations including Karachi, MULTAN, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad and Hyderabad, dropping passengers off at the chaotic general bus station. Trains (a more comfortable way to travel) shuffle between MULTAN, Karachi, and Rawalpindi.

About 966 km from Karachi and more or less right in the centre of the country lies the ancient city of Multan.  Multan, the 'City of Pirs and Shrines' is a prosperous city of bazaars, mosques, shrines and superbly designed tombs.  It is also a city of dust, summer heat and beggars.  It has a long history.  Alexander the Great added it to his list of Indus conquests.

Multan Clock Tower

MULTAN is the Capital of the province of Punjab and the second largest city of Pakistan. MULTAN is Pakistan's cultural, educational and artistic capital. MULTAN is an ancient city and its history dates back to 630 AD. It was at its most glorious during the Mughal rule and has some of the best examples of Mughal architecture in South Asia. Also seen in MULTAN are some fine colonial buildings of the British Era. Most of the Mughal monuments are located in and around the old city of MULTAN which had twelve gates and a wall around it. Although most of the wall is gone, some gates are still there. The old city is still very alive and vibrant with a maze of narrow roads, lanes and bustling bazaars. MULTAN has expanded immensely over the last 50 years and is still growing.

THE TOMB OF SHAH RUKN-E-ALAM
The mausoleum of Shah Rukn-e-Alam is also situated on the fort mound. The Shaikh was the son of Pir Sadar-Al-Din Arif born at Multan on the 9th of Friday Ramazan 649/26 November 1251. He was the grandson and successor of Shaikh Baha-Al-Din Zakariya.
Shaikh Rukn-i-Alam (Rukn-al-Din) died on the 7th of Friday (735/3 Jamadial-Awwal, January 1335). He was buried in the mausoleum of his grandfather, according to his own will. After sometime, however, his coffin was transferred to the present mausoleum. It was constructed, according to a popular belief, by Ghiyas-al-Din Tughluq (1340-1350) during the days of his governorship of Depalpur, but was given by Feruz Shah Tughluq to the descendents of Shah Rukn-I-Alam for the latter’s burial. The mausoleum of Rukn-I-Alam has been admired by not only the travelers and chroniclers but also by the art-historians and archaeologist who wrote the architectural history of the subcontinent.

THE TOMB OF SHAH SABZWARI

The tomb of Shah Shamas Sabzwari is situated near the Aam Khas Bagh, about a quarter of a mile on the east of the ancient port on the high bank of the old bed of the Ravi which is now filled with a multitude of modern buildings. Shah shams Sabzwari was a celebrated “Ismaili Dai”. Very little is known about Shams Sabzari’s life. According to a popular legend, he arrived in Multan at the time of Shaikh Baha-al-Din Zakariya. He breathed his last at the age of 111 years
