This holy place is located in the corridor of the tomb of Shah Shams Sabzwari on Shah Shams road.

A beautiful building touching the sky is visible just after crossing the Daulat Gate Chowk in Multan City. This is the tomb of Shah Shams Ji.

Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji stayed outside the city when he came to Multan.

It was here that Shah Rukne Alam sent him a bowl of milk filled to the brim which meant that Multan was already over crowded.

Guru Nanak sent back the same glass of milk after placing a flower petal on top, conveying to him that he would accommodate himself similarly as the flower petal had made room for itself in the glass filled with milk.

Guru Nanak had discussions with different mystics and learned personalities of the area. There is no separate Gurdwara here but for the Thara Sahib in the corridor of the Mazar.

Prakash used to take place during the rule of Maharaja Ranjit Singh but during the British rule it was discontinued in 1850 AD. This corridor still exists as a monument of the arrival of Guru Nanak in Multan.
