Well Multan is known as the 'City of Sufi Saints and Shrines'. The city is full of bazars (markets), mosques, shrines and superbly designed tombs. The numerous Sufi shrines within the old city offer impressive examples of workmanship and architecture. The Shams-e Tabriz shrine is built almost entirely of sky-blue engraved glazed bricks. That of Shah Rukn-e Alam (Tughlaq period) has one of the biggest domes in Asia. The shrine of Sheikh Yusuf Gardez is a masterpiece of the Multani style. Other shrines include the Pahladpuri Temple and the Idgah Mosque (1735).
City can be divided into parts one old Multan with old, traditional buildings and markets where people still follow old cultural values and live with the purely old tradional style in a very simple way. Whereas there is a modern brand new Multan city that holds all the modern looks and facilities.
Basically I belong to Karachi one of the biggest cities of Pakistan where life is as like as in the other big cities of of the world. I have been visited several other cities of Pakistan too but if I compare Karachi with them especially small cities like Multan then I must say that life here in Karachi is much faster and different. Simplicity is the most highlighted difference that I found there in both people and their life styles and that truly admired and attracted me as it is truly rare in other big, advanced cities.
