Shrine of Sheikh Rukn-Alam, Multan, Pakistan – April 2008

    Newer Older

    Rukn-ud-Din Abul Fatah 1251 to 1334 was a widely loved scholar and became head of Suhrawardiya sufi sect founded by his father Baha-ud-Din Zakaria. The structure is built entirely of red brick and timber. The building has two octagonal lower storey’s strengthened by buttresses an supporting massive spired dome almost 20 metres in diameter, and has a total height of over 30 metres. The interior and exterior are decorated with garters of glazed tiles in blue and turquoise laid in regular geometric bas-reliefs. Inside are dozens of chevron shaped ridges laid out on the ground like graves, but the tomb of the saint is draped under a cloth in a canopy. The tomb was built between 1320-1324.
