It is situated few yards away from Abbasi Masjid. The Abbasi family was the ruling Nawab family of Bahawalpur and all of the previous Nawabs are buried here. The graveyard is still owned and controlled by the Nawabs surviving family members. The monument is located near and opposite to the Derawar Fort.
It is an antediluvian holy site located approx. 1.5 Km offside 15km Raiwind road, Lahore.
