The first fort on the site was built by Hindu Rajput, Rai Jajja Bhati. It remained in the hands of the royal family of Jaisalmer until captured by the Nawabs of Bahawalpur in 1733. The area is rich in archaeological artifacts associated with Ganweriwala, a vast but as-yet-unexcavated city of the Indus Valley Civilization.

Approximately 1 and a half hours’ drive from multan will lead you into Bahawalpur.
Last saturday I had the pleasure of getting to know about Bahawalpur.
Places I went to:
Noor mehal is usually off limits at night to the civilians… Guess I should consider myself lucky to dine in that beautiful palace.
Splendid View of Noor Mehal at night
PS: Its not located in Multan but I want to keep a record of places I went to while residing in multan… Thats why categorized so.
Multan has proved itself a city worth living in. When I first moved here, I felt very confined but now I take a walk in the beautiful Polo ground and admire nature. Jahanzeb Polo Cup is held every year in this ground. This year I had the pleasure of attending it. Apart from polo, tent pegging and donkey race were held too which was quite amusing. 😛
Unfortunately I could not capture photos of the final of Jahanzeb Polo Cup but here are a few clicks….
