Note:  Do not rely on this information. It is very old.


Multan, the capital and the only important city, stands four miles from the left bank of the Chenab, and was formerly traversed by the Ravi, which has now altered its course. It consists of one long bazaar and a mass of dirty, tortuous streets, partially enclosed within three walls, but large suburbs have sprung up within the last forty years. The trade of the place is considerable, and, as the headquarters of the district, it possesses political importance. Beyond two Mohammedan shrines and a ruined Hindu temple, there are no monuments of interest. It is connected by the Sind, Punjab and Delhi railway with the East Indian trunk line at Delhi and with the northern districts of the Punjab.
