Makhdoom Sahib

This fort gives a magnificent top view of Makhdoom Sahib Shrine and falls on the southern side of the hill. Beauty of this shrine is truly enchanting and invites devotees on a large scale irrespective of their religion. This shrine is named after Hazrat Sultan, who belonged to Syed dynasty. He hailed from Tujar Shareef which lies in Kashmir. He inherited land lordship from the family but was a scholar and a mystic Sufi Muslim Saint. ‘Makhdoom’ denotes a person who dedicates his life to Islam and Quran.
