History

HISTORY OF SHEIKHUPURA :

Shah Bilawal is one of the saints from the Silsilah Qadriyah. He was the son of Syed Usman and grandson of Syed Eysah. Syed Eysah came to Hindustan from Harat along with Mughal Emperor Hamayon. The king gave Sheikhupura along with the surrounding towns to him. Shah Bilawal died in 1636. The great Emperor Nor-u-Din Muhammad Jahangir laid the foundation of historical Sheikhupura. The mother of Jahangir was Hindu and she lovingly called him Sheikhu Baba. The new city was also named as Sheikhupura. In the North East, at a distance of 2.5 Miles, a hunting place was built. A Baradari was constructed in a pond and on its bank. Jahangir ordered to build the grave of his beloved Dear Mansraj along with a tomb. This place is now known as Hiran Minar. Jahangir granted all this area to one of his faithful Sikandar Moin, after his death it was given to Irdat Khan. During the reign of Emperor Jahangir (1605 to 1627), Sheikhupura had the status of royal hunting ground. In Tuzke-Jahangiri, Jahangir wrote during the events in the 1607.
