The Derajat had its existence as an historical area to the Baloch immigration in the fifteenth century. Sultan Husain, the Langah dynasty's Sultan of Multan, being unable to hold his trans-Indus possessions, called in Baloch mercenaries, and assigned these territories to Haji Khan.

Tomb of Ghazi Khan Edit


The tomb of Ghazi Khan, locally called as handeera in Balochi was built in the beginning of 15th century.[citation needed] This seems like the tomb of Shah Rukn-e-Alam in Multan. It is located in the Mulla Quaid Shah Graveyard. Its main gate is from eastern side and two small doors are in side of north and south. Every side of the tomb is 13 feet 3 inches (4.04 m) from inside and there are conical minarets from the outside. Its circular distance from the earth is 17.5 feet (5.3 m).[citation needed] The half diameter of the conical minarets remains 34 inches (86 cm) on the highest of 19 feet (5.8 m). There are 28 ladders from northern side in the internal side. The graveyard was built up around the tomb of Ghazi Khan.[citation needed] This is the oldest building in the city. The tomb condition is continuously deteriorating and many social activists are raising voice to preserve this heritage.[2]
