"With four rare things multan abounds
Heat, Saints, Dust and Burial Grounds"
The above couplet by a Persian poet describes the primordial environment of the historic city of multan. But that has changed now and not only the city of multan but also the district itself has been transformed into a green, fertile area. It is fast becoming an industrial town. The city has its own charm, culture and crafts. The origin of the name 'multan' is obscure and so is the period of its founding. Hiuen Tsang has called it as Mulosan pulu and Alberuni called it Multana, which ultimately came to be called multan.
