Located in the heart of the town. Visible from quite distance during day or night. Vehicles are required to be parked at some distance. Be ware of pick pockets. Be very careful to deal beggars with initiative and bold, one may not be able to handle them. Do not accept any souvenir unless you believe in it and ready to pay charity.

Thank Muttaqi

Had to walk through a very crowded market to get to the entrance of the Shrine. The place is full of beggars and handicapped people. it is very crowded. Photos allowed. The dervishes in their ragged and colourful clothing are interesting. The tomb is beautiful with the mirrored walls.

Couple of years, I had only one opportunity to visit Shewan Sharif, Sindh, Pakistan and pay my respect to Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalandar. It is said that there are 3.5 Qalandars who lived in this world and one of them is Hazrat Lal Shahbaz (Lal means Red which was the dress color of this great sufi saint). There are other 2 qalandars and .5 is Rabia Basri (RA) who was a women. The Qalandar spread Islam and brotherhood amongst Muslims and Hindus, that is why one can find, devotees from different religions visiting the mazaar. The Urs(death anniversary) of the Qalandar was held earlier this month and due to intense heat, some of the pilgrims died due to suffocation and some drowned in the canal. I also visited during summer (May to July) and it was really hot. Nowadays, the facilities have improved but still due to heavy crowd, one must be prepared to be patience. It is not advisable for older people to visit in summers, Jan/Feb would be the best time. There are small hotels and restaurants but no luxuries. Food is plenty and given/distributed free of cost. People also offer sweets/juices to the pilgrims. Specially during URS, there is Dhamal i.e. beating of the drum and people dancing to the tune. It is a wonderful scene, in particular the famous song in Urdu or Sindhi 'Lal meri'. Precaution, do not carry valuables and ladies should avoid wearing gold as chances of being snatched are high. I strongly recommend that one should visit the shrine and seek the blessing of this great Qalandar, people get rewarded and also, gain peace of sould
