Multan Sun Temple: Today is the birthday of Sri Suryanarayana Murthy. Special pujas are performed at the Sun Temples and other famous shrines in the country. However, the British divided Pakistan and India into a united India. During this time many prominent Hindu temples remained on Pak soil. One of the famous temples that was lost is the Sun Temple in Multana which is said to have been built by the son of Lord Krishna. Let’s learn about the uniqueness of this temple ..!
Sun worship has the highest priority in Hinduism. There are also claims that the ever-chanting Gayatri mantra is also a mantra praising the sun. Many temples were built in the whole country to measure such a cosmopolitan. The same Multan Sun Temple in Pakistan! It is believed that a sun temple was built in the city of Kashyapapuram in Pakistan almost two thousand years ago. The Sun Temple is the main attraction of the city. Thousands of devotees come from all over to visit the temple and pay their respects. That is why the city was called the headquarters. Gradually the name changed to ‘Multan’.
Local mythology says that the Sun Temple in Multan was built by Sambudu, the son of Krishna. Krishna cursed Sambudi, who had accidentally committed a sin, to suffer from leprosy. It seems that Sambudu built a great sun temple in Multan to get rid of that curse. Later all the people also visited this temple to get rid of their ailments and hardships. The soil there was also believed to have the glory of curing diseases. Who could carry that clay with them. The name Multani clay has become established for any clay that is written in such a way.
According to the historians who visited the temple at that time, all the idols, doors, pillars and spiers of the temple were gleaming with silver and gold. The offerings made by the devotees visiting the temple were the main source of income for the kingdom. The popularity of the temple did not diminish even after the domination of the Muslim rulers over the region in the eighth century. Over time a civil war broke out between the rulers. Those who gained the upper hand over Multan in that battle showed their kasinanta on the Sun Temple. Ghazni Muhammad, who invaded the region in the eleventh century, perfected that destruction. Now there are no landmarks where this sun temple is.
In addition to the Sun Temple, Multan also has another unique temple. The same Narasimhaswamy temple. Devotees believe that this region was the kingdom ruled by Hiranyakashipu, the father of Prahlada. Hence, the town is also known as Kashyapuram after Hiranyakashipu. After the assassination of Hiranyakashipu, it was Prahlada himself who built a temple for Narasimhaswamy here. The temple has also been vandalized by rioters from time to time. However, the temple was rebuilt by the local Hindus. The temple was almost demolished in 1992 in protest of the demolition of the Babri Masjid in our country. At present, only the stubborn walls of the temple remain, and it seems that the Multani mud came from this temple.
