MYSTICAL LIGHT
Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai’s Shrine, Bhit Shah, Sindh


A man walks across a door that leads into the inner courtyard of Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai’s shrine. A revered Sindhi saint and poet Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai renounced material comforts and chose a bhit or sand dune on which to sit and meditate. His shrine is built in typical Sindhi style, with limestone domes, minarets and blue kashi tiles and mirror work. Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai’s poems have been compiled in a collection entitled Shah Jo Risalo.
