savepunjabforfuture These three people have ruined Punjab the most. Instead of cutting of the drug supplies they sell drugs during election. How can we elect these people who don't even see their turban to be proud of, and do something which reflects Sikhi. #punjab #badalsarkar #changeisneeded 42min

tdcppakistan The Sun Temple of Multan, also known as the Aditya Sun Temple, was an ancient Hindu temple dedicated to Surya also called Aditya, which was located in the city of Multan, Punjab.
The original Sun Temple at Multan is said to have been built by Samba, son of Krishna, to gain relief from the symptoms of his leprosy. The Sun Temple is also mentioned by Greek Admiral Skylax, who passed through the area in 515 BC. Multan, earlier known as Kashyapapura, and its temple are also mentioned by Herodotus.
Hsuen Tsang is said to have visited the temple in 641 AD, and described an idol of the Sun God made of pure gold with eyes made from large red rubies.Gold, silver and gems were abundantly used in its doors, pillars and shikhara. Thousands of Hindus regularly went to Multan to worship the Sun God. Hsuen Tsang is also said to have seen several devadasis ("dancing girls") in the temple. Travelers like Hsuen Tsang, Istakhari and others, mentioned other idols in their travelogue, saying that that the idols of Shiva andBuddha were also installed in the temple
After the conquest of Multan by the Umayyad Caliphate, under the leadership of Muhammad bin Qasim, the Sun Temple became a source of great income for the Muslim government. Muhammad bin Qasim 'made captive of the custodians of the budd, numbering 6000' and looted its wealth, sparing the idol — which was made of wood, covered with red leather and two red rubies for its eyes and wearing a gem-studded gold crown — 'thinking it best to leave the idol where it was, but hanging a piece of cow's flesh on its neck by way of mockery'
However, the temple is said to have been finally destroyed by Mahmud of Ghazni in 1026 AD. Al-Baruni wrote that the temple in Multan was never visited by Hindu pilgrims in the 11th century because it was completely destroyed by that time and never rebuilt.
The city of Multan may get its name from the Sanskrit name for the Sun idol and Sun temple, Mulasthana.The exact site of the Sun Temple of Multan is unknown.
