Situated on top of a small hillock, behind the old ruins of Multan Fort, the Mazar and its majestic dome is the first landmark visible when you enter proper Multan.
Shah Rukn-e-Alam (1251-1335) was a Sufi saint in Multan. He was revered by his followers, and to this date thousands of pilgrims from all over Pakistan come to Multan to pay homage. He was the grandson and successor of another great Sufi Shaikh Baha-Ud-Din Zakariya, whose Mazar is also near this one.
The Mazar itself is a wonderful piece of architecture. It was made for someone else and that family donated this to this Sufi. The dome is more than 50 feet in diameter, and height of over 100 feet. The entire complex is built with red bricks and decorated with wonderful woodwork.
