Ghore Shah {Lahore, Pakistan}

The name of the saint was Burhanuddin. He was called Ghore Shah because of his passion for horses. He was a born ‘Wali’ and he performed miracles while still a child of five.  He was so fond of horses that if a person presented a toy horse to him his wishes were fulfilled. He was upbraided by his father for the extravagant display of spiritual powers. He died in 1594 while still a child.

It is a popular shrine and the pilgrims offer gifts of toy horses.

A mosque is attached to the shrine.
