Kasur

Kasur, the city of Bulleh Shah and the capital of Kasur District, is located 55 km southeast of Lahore. It is one of the oldest cities in Pakistan. Kasur is adjacent to the border between Pakistan and India and is a tourist attraction because of the guard changing ceremony.

It is known for its very spicy fish, a sweet dish called Andrassay, Falooda and Kasuri methi. It is also the birthplace of Noor Jehan, the Pakistani singer and actress who gained popularity in the 1950s.

There are different traditions about the name of Kasur. One is that the town was founded by Kasur/ Kasu the son of King Ram and named after him as Kasurpur. (One of Kasu's brothers was Loh and the City of Lahore was named after him.) According to another tradition the town was founded by Pashtun families from Kabul (today the capital of Afghanistan) during the period of Mughal emperor Akbar. The Pashtuns constructed 12 small forts known as Kot. There were about twelve Kots named after the heads of various families.
