I am surprised that people haven't heard about this city which is famous for saints, sufism and is one of the oldest cities in south asia. it even existed before the foundation of Lahore, Pakistan's second largest city. It held much importance in the cultural, economic and political arena of south asia before british rule.

Looks like it got pushed off by Mecca. I've definitely heard of Mecca, which was home to slightly more famous religious kooks than Multan.
