Ferozepur, Punjab, India: Devotees from different communities throng Bulle Shah's shrine. A humanist and a philosopher Bulle Shah is considered as one of the greatest Sufi saints.
Born in 1680 in a family directly descended from the Prophet Muhammad he is known for practicing the Sufi tradition of Punjabi poetry established by poets like Shah Hussain and Sultan Bahu.
Though Bulle Shah was born in a small village of Uch Bahawalpur Punjab now in Pakistan, one of his shrines is located in the small village of Kandhwala Hazarkhan in Ferozepur.
