Hazrat Miskin Shah Amri {Lahore, Pakistan}

The shrine of Hazrat Miskin Shah Amri is situated to the South of the road leading from Mianmir railway station to the cantonment.

The dome of the shrine is in the center of a platform of solid masonry. The walls were originally decorated with beautiful enameled pottery work, but these were divested of these embellishments by the Sikhs.

The saint whose original name was Inayat Ullah was a disciple of Hazrat Mianmir. He was called Amri because none knew how he supported himself.

The saint died in 1647 A.D. The shrine was roused to his memory by prince Dara Shikoh.
