LAL DEVOTEE
Bodla Bahar’s Shrine, Sehwan, Sindh


A man wearing a red turban prays at the Shrine of Bodla Bahar, a disciple of the revered Sufi saint, Lal Shahbaz Qalandar. Legend has it that Bodla Bahar was quartered and killed by an evil king after which Lal Shahbaz Qalandar preformed a miracle and brought his student back to life. Bodla Bahar’s Shrine stands besides that of his Sufi master in Sehwan.
