Multan is a very old and historical city. It has passed through many vicissitudes of fortune in its long and chequered history but has always been acknowledged as a place of great culture and civilization and has grown from strength to strength to occupy, as it does today, a very distinguished and honorable position among the cities of Pakistan. 200-BC:The earliest history of multan fades away in the mists of mystery and mythology. Most of the historians, however agree that multan beyond any doubt, is the same Maii-us-than which was conquered by Alexander who faced here tremendous resistance. He was fatally wounded while fighting to capture the citadel. For the first time his sacred shield, which he had taken from the temple of Illion, Athena, and which he used always to be carried before him in all his battles, rolled in dust while he fell unconscious on the ground with blood gushing out from his wounds. But that was the scene which inspired the Macedonians and seeing their king in that state they launched a lightening attack and captured the citadel without any further harm to Alexander. Alexander, however, never recovered fully well after this battle and died, on his way back, at Babylon.
