Kasur Tour Guide From Lahore:

We started our journey early morning  ( on bike ) from Lahore by taking Ferozepur Road  and after driving (almost 53 Km) for about an hour , we reached at Kasur main city . First of all we decided to go  on Tomb of Bulleh Shah.  Bulleh Shahwas a Mughal-era ( 1680-1757 ) Punjabi Islamic philosopher and Sufi poet . The hunt for his tomb involved a drive through bazaars, followed by a short walk while navigating the great Kasuri markets, the scent of fried fish and rubber tyres in the air.

Oh Bulleh Shah, let’s go there
Where everyone is blind
Where no one recognises our caste
And where no one believes in us

As we walked towards the domed structure, we   feel an otherworldly sense of peace . Peeking through the latticed stone, a hint of green and red stares back. It is the double coverlets on Bulleh Shah’s grave, green signifying his ceaseless attachment to religion , and red a sign of undying strength. There is visible life in the enclosure and  sense of peace .

we settled  in the courtyard to listen  kafis of Bulleh Shah being sung by the famous group of qawwals at the shrine . We sat there for a long while, listening to Bulleh Shah’s kalams.
