    Empire of the epics MULTAN

    Multan
    It was the capital of ancient Trigarta Kingdom at the time of Mahabharta and ruled by Katoch Clan Kshatriya Rajputs. It is believed to have been visited by Alexander the Great. It is said that when Alexander was fighting for the city, a poisoned arrow struck him, making him ill and eventually leading to his death. The exact place where Alexander was hit by the arrow can be seen in the old city premises.

    It is believed to be the same city as "Maii-us-than", where Alexander's forces stormed the citadel after seeing their king injured and unconscious on the field of battle. Multan was part of the Mauryan and the Gupta empires that ruled much of northern India. In the mid-5th century, the city was attacked by a group of nomads led by Toraman. These nomads were successful in taking the city, but did not stay, and the long-standing Hindu/Zorastrian rule over the city was re-established. The noted Chinese traveller Huen Tsang visited Multan in 641.During the Pre-Islamic period, Multan was known as the city of gold for its large and wealthy temples.


     


    The Sun temple, Suraj Mandir, was considered one of the largest and wealthiest temples in the entire sub-continent. Numerous historians have written about this extremely large Hindu temple that housed over 6,000 people within it.

    اندرون ملتان جانے کا زیادہ اتفاق نھیں ھوا ، لیکن ایک دفعہ ایک سو سال پرانی مسجد دیکھی تو دل خوش ھو گیا ، اللہ اھل پاکستان کو خوش اور آباد رکھے آمین۔
