He was called Lal (red) after his usual red attire, Shahbaz due to his noble and divine spirit, and Qalandar for his Sufi affiliation. Many Hindus regard him as the incarnation of Bhrithari while others (Hindus from Sindh) consider him as an emanation of Jhule lal.

  • What a soulful place. Loads of beggars. Be cautious about your belongings. Don't wear to forget socks if you hate walking in dirt like me. They ask you to take off your shoes n path is very dirty.
  • It's a land of one of the most pious Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalandar. Thousands of devotees and followers visit the shrine to pay respect to Mazhar Shareef.  He is revered and respected by both Muslims and Hindus in the region since he preached religious tolerance between the faiths. Unfortunately city does not offer descent facilities to the devotees. Infrastructure and quality of foods and accommodation is very unsatisfactory. Although tourism can be key to boost up the micro economic but government has failed to provide it so.
