By the 13th century, the belief that the spiritual powers of great Sufi saints were attached to their burial sites was widespread in the Muslim world1
The shrine was built in 1262 before the death of Zakariya in 1268. Unusual for a dervish, the structure was paid for at the expense of Bahauddin Zakariya - highlighting his unique financial independence.
Dara Shikoh unsuccessfully attempted to win the loyalty of Multan's citizens by donating 25,000 Rupees to the shrine following his defeat by his brother at the Battle of Samugarh in 1658.
The shrine's sajjada nashin, or hereditary caretaker, Makhdoom Mahmud assisted British forces against Sikh forces during the Siege of Multan in 1848. The shrine's cupola and part of its upper tier were damaged during the siege by British cannonballs, but were repaired soon afterwards.

Multan is Pakistan's third-largest metropolis and the country's oldest historic city, steeped in Sufism and traditional values. Multan is known as "Gada-o-Goristan," which means "city of gold, Sufis, and bloggers." Nothing and no other destination better defines Sufism, long-held beliefs, and traditional values than Multan, which is why it is also known as "Gada-o-Goristan." Multan, the oldest city in the world, was once the capital of a kingdom of rulers from various religious and cultural backgrounds.
Multan is a city that has preserved so many cultural features of its history that they may still be observed in old and archaic temples and darbars. Traditional Multani dresses, which are stitched and adorned by skilled artisans, keep the essence of that long heritage alive. Essentially, female artists in Multan pioneered the notion of hand embroidery, and Multani Embroidery is one of the most prominent and well-known arts not only within Pakistan but also outside its borders.
Despite the fact that Islam is the most widely practiced religion, the city is home to various Sikh and Hindu populations, each having its own sacred Mandirs (temples) and Gurdwaras. The Sun Mandir, which was formerly regarded as the most prominent center of devotion in South Asia, is one of Multan's most notable temples. Suraj Kund, which means "sun pool," is another mandir built on top of a pond when it was full of water. However, Narsinghpur Temple and Prahladpuri Temple were two other mandirs.
"Derra" is the most important component of Multani culture. It's a type of "Bhettak" where individuals get together after work to talk about their troubles or just have a nice time. In a pessimistic society like ours, this sort of culture offers worth and care for one another, which is highly encouraged. Multani culture's "Food" is another fascinating component. If there was no food, what else would a real Pakistani enjoy? Multan, as previously said, is a melting pot of ethnic groups, therefore it offers a diverse range of establishments, including continental, Chinese, fast food, Arabic, Pakistani, and many others.
