Ancient Suraj Kund Temple in Multan

Perhaps the oldest surviving thing in Multan is Suraj Kund Mandir in Suraj Kund Area of Multan. Nearly in dated 1000BC Sun was worshiped in Multan and history of Suraj (means Sun) Kund corresponds to it. Simply it is also called Sun Temple of Multan. Govt of Pakistan has approved rehabilitation of this temple.

Interesting Facts about Shah Shams
It is also sacred to Muslims because here is the place when Saint Shah Shams Sabzwari Tabrez was debarred by the people and he was not given anything to eat, he got a piece of meat somehow but nobody allowed him to cook. He said to Sun "I cant come closer to you so please you come closer to me" Sun came near to earth, so close to it and cooked the meat and people escape to save their lives they jumped into river Chanab but water was boiling. That was story how Multan became so hot. Shah Shams means King of Sun.
