City Wall of Multan or Faseel e Multan (Urdu: فصیل ملتان‎) is an ancient wall encircling the old city of Multan. It was built and rebuilt many times as it was destroyed in battles. The original construction time is unknown but it was present during the Siege of Multan and damaged badly. Part of this wall near Haram Gate was totally destroyed and was used by British troops to enter into the city. The present wall was constructed in 1756 AD.
