About Sindh

Men presenting their handmade Sindhi ajraks in Hala, Sindh.

Where Is Sindh?

Sindh is a province in southeastern Pakistan that stretches from the fields of southern Punjab to the coast of the Arabian Sea. Most of the region consists of farmland that depends on the water of the Indus River, after which the region is named. However, the western fringes bordering the mountainous province of Balochistan are characterized by the rugged Kirthar Mountains, and the eastern fringes are occupied by the sandy Thar Desert, which is shared with India. The most populous city in Sindh is Karachi , followed by Hyderabad.

Who Are The Sindhi People?

Sindh is home to the Sindhi people, most of whom are the descendants of local tribes as well as Baloch tribes that migrated to the region from the western mountains. The Sindhi language is related to Saraiki and Punjabi and has been widely used to compose Sufi poetry over the past centuries. Locals are extremely proud of their cultural handicrafts, such as the traditional block-printed ajrak patterns and the Sindhi cap, as well as their outstanding culture of hospitality.

Best Time To Visit Sindh

Sindh is known for unforgivingly hot temperatures in summer that frequently break world records, followed by destructive floods. Given that air-conditioning is almost non-existent in rural areas, traveling to Sindh in summer is best avoided.

Winters on the other hand are pleasantly mild, whereas the touristic northern areas of Pakistan are unbearably cold, making it the perfect time to visit Sindh . Spring and autumn are also suitable times, with hot temperatures during daytime and mild weather at night.

Is Sindh Safe?

Sindh often gets a bad rap due to crime and corruption, but I personally felt very safe at all times. Sindhis are some of the most respectful people in Pakistan and are extremely caring of their guests. Compared to other parts of the country, I have gotten harassed significantly less in Sindh.

However, while most parts are relatively safe, a region that should be avoided at all costs is the area between Shikarpur and Kashmore (and extending north to Rajanpur in Punjab), which is infamous in Sindh for its criminal gangs and kidnappings. Caution is in general advised in the northern parts of the parts of the province such as Sukkur, due to crime.

Due to these concerns as well as lacking tourism infrastructure, it’s best to explore Sindh in the company of locals.

Can Foreigners Visit Sindh Province?

While there are no official rules barring tourists from the province, countless foreign travelers have reported problems with local police or intelligence agencies during their trips to Sindh. Enforcement is extremely random and it all depends on your luck, but some places are better or worse than others, as in:

  • Usually no problems: Karachi and Hyderabad City
  • Problems are likely: most parts of the province, including touristic sites like Moenjo-Daro and Thatta
  • Problems are extremely likely: Dadu District as well as small towns and remote areas
  • Problems are guaranteed: Thar Desert, especially in proximity to the Indian border

What exactly are those problems? In the more touristic places, you may be questioned by intelligence agencies and offered police escort. In this case, it’s best to comply and continue your visit with your assigned escort. In other places, such as Thar Desert, you may be asked to leave. It’s best to avoid these places unless you have obtained official permission.

Furthermore, it is difficult to find accommodation in most of Sindh as most hotels don’t host foreigners. One way to avoid this problem is by staying with locals, although this may cause trouble for hosts with the local authorities. Worst comes to worst, foreigners can stay in bigger cities like Hyderabad and explore other places during day trips.

Top 12 Best Places To Visit In Sindh

Convinced to visit Sindh? These are the best places to visit, ranked from north to south:

The northern city of Sukkur may be your first stop when entering Sindh from the north. There are many interesting historic sites in and around the city such as the Sukkur Barrage and the tombs of the seven sisters. Furthermore, a stroll across the bazaar is a great welcome to Sindh.

Kot Diji Fort & Khairpur

Not far from Sukkur lies Khairpur, and the accompanying Kot Diji Fort. The Kot Diji Fort is an impressive 18th-century fort built by the Talpur Dynasty, which ruled Sindh at the time. The well-preserved ruins at the edge of Thar Desert offer great views of the arid landscape. Khairpur on the other hand is a larger city that also houses remains from the Talpur Dynasty, such as the picturesque Faiz Mahal, the royal palace of the Talpurs.

Date Plantations

Some of Sindh’s most stunning views can be enjoyed from the comfort of a car on the way from Sukkur to Khairpur. The region is famous for its endless date palm plantations that create a lush oasis along the road. It’s worth taking a break there to admire these gorgeous plantations from up close. Besides dates, other fruits such as mangoes and bananas are grown in the same fields.

Thar Desert

As mentioned earlier, the Thar Desert is vast and spans along the eastern fringes of the entirety of Sindh and extends well into India. The landscape is very diverse, with mountainous portions in the south and even a white desert called Achro Thar. The natives of the Thar Desert follow a very distinct culture, many of whom are Hindu and live in huts in the middle of the sandy desert. My visit to the Thar Desert was certainly a highlight of my time in Pakistan and I can’t decide which was more impressive, the landscape or the culture.

Moenjo-Daro

Moenjo-Daro is the single most famous site in Sindh and a must for every traveler. The UNESCO World Heritage site dates back to around 5000 years and is one of the best preserved remains of the Indus Valley Civilization. Together with the ruins of Taxila , Moenjo-Daro is the most significant ancient site in Pakistan.

Gorakh Hill Station

Gorakh Hill Station in Dadu District is the most popular tourist place in Sindh for a good reason: at 1734 meters elevation, the hill station, which marks the provincial border between Sindh and Balochistan, has a significantly cooler climate than other places in Sindh, making it the perfect escape from the scorching heat in summer. The rugged mountains are also home to nomadic Baloch tribes and a visit to Gorakh Hills may offer an interesting insight into their unique culture. The Gorakh Hills resort offers both hotel rooms and tents for camping on top of the mountain and is a popular weekend getaway among Karachiites.

Sehwan Sharif

South of Dadu lies the city of Sehwan Sharif, which houses the famous shrine of Sayyid Usman Marwandi, more commonly known as Lal Shahbaz Qalandar. Lal Shahbaz Qalandar is one of the most revered Sufi saints in Sindh and has been credited with converting large numbers of Sindhis to Islam in the 12th and 13th century. Until today, countless pilgrims from across Sindh flock to Sehwan Sharif to pray at the shrine. While the architecture of the Sufi shrine on its own is impressive, the special atmosphere is what makes this place truly stand out.

Manchar Lake

A short drive west of Sehwan lies one of the largest freshwater lakes in Asia. Manchar Lake is a remote natural reserve that is best explored in colorful wooden boats. There are even people who live on boats in the middle of the lake! Despite its great potential, Manchar Lake is not touristic at all and every visitor will be treated as a guest there.

Ranikot Fort

Ranikot Fort is another Talpur era fort and thought to be the world’s largest fort. Its endless walls are often compared to the Great Wall of China, which gives the fort the nickname ‘Great Wall of Sindh’. The impressive historic site is located within the Kirthar National Park, making it a peaceful place and suitable for camping.

Bhitshah & Hala

Bhitshah and Hala are two small towns north of Hyderabad that offer an amazing insight into Sindhi culture. Bhitshah houses the shrine of Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, the greatest Sindhi Sufi poet while Hala is famous for its traditional handicrafts. In addition to shopping for souvenirs in local shops, Hala also has an ajrak factory where visitors can witness the 20-step process of traditional ajrak making.

Hyderabad is the second-largest city in the province and a center of modern Sindhi culture. The city is famous for three things: Hyderabadi Biryani, the greatest rival of Karachi Biryani, delicious coffee cake from Bombay Bakery, and colorful hand-painted bangles that are sold in the city’s extremely crowded bazaar.

Only about an hour east of Karachi, Thatta is an excellent day trip from Karachi. The are around Thatta houses some of Sindh’s most impressive historic sites such as the UNESCO World Heritage site of Makli – one of the world’s largest and most beautiful graveyards housing an estimate one million tombs, the beautiful blue-tiled Shah Jahan Mosque, and the ancient ruins of Bambhore. Karachi-based travel agencies can organize private tours upon request. Thatta can also be reached by public transportation from Qaidabad bus terminal, although I couldn’t recommend this to any sane traveler.

Honorary Mention: Karachi

Undoubtedly, Pakistan’s biggest and in my opinion most beautiful city is one of the best places to visit in Sindh, but I didn’t officially include it on this list for a few reasons:

  • Karachi is extremely diverse and therefore not the best place to get to know Sindhi culture.
  • If you’re traveling in Sindh you’re probably going to or have been to Karachi already.
  • I have an entire article dedicated to the most beautiful places to visit in Karachi

Sindh is one of the most underrated provinces of Pakistan and a must-visit for travelers who admire history and local cultures. It’s home to some of the most impressive UNESCO World Heritage sites as well as natural beauty and extremely hospitable people. There are endless great places to visit in Sindh, this article just summarizes a few of the most notable ones!

I didn’t realise Moenjo Daro is in Sindh. I’ve always wanted to visit there, having learned about it in school many years ago. I actually even do a lot of work remotely for Pakistan in my day job, but travelling there is always tricky because of the security & safety concerns. Really hope that Pakistan manages to be stable and independent one day, as its solving its many prosperity and sustainability issues always come up against this obstacle.

That’s amazing! And we can all just hope for more stability in the future, I’m sure tourism in the country will greatly prosper then.

The capital city of Sindh is Karachi, which is not only the largest city in Pakistan but also one of the world’s most populous cities.

The geography of Sindh is incredibly diverse, ranging from the vast plains of the Indus River to the arid desert regions of Thar. The province is characterized by its fertile alluvial plains, providing a perfect environment for agriculture. The Indus River, one of the longest rivers in Asia, flows through Sindh, providing a lifeline to the region and shaping its landscape.

The coastal belt of Sindh stretches along the Arabian Sea and is home to picturesque beaches, such as Clifton Beach and Manora Island. These sandy shores attract both locals and tourists, offering opportunities for relaxation, water sports, and fresh seafood delicacies.

With its diverse terrain, ranging from coastal plains to deserts, lakes, and wetlands, Sindh offers a fascinating mix of natural beauty and landscapes that are waiting to be explored and appreciated.

History and Culture

Sindh has a rich and storied history that dates back thousands of years. The region has witnessed the rise and fall of several ancient civilizations, including the Indus Valley Civilization, which was one of the world’s earliest urban societies. The archaeological ruins of Mohenjo-daro and Harappa, located in Sindh, testify to the advanced urban planning and engineering skills of this ancient civilization.

Throughout its history, Sindh has been influenced by various empires and dynasties, including the Persian, Greek, Arab, and Mughal empires. This blend of influences has shaped the cultural fabric of the region, resulting in a unique fusion of traditions and customs.

The Sindhi people, who are the predominant ethnic group in the province, have a deep-rooted cultural heritage. They are known for their hospitality, warmth, and strong sense of community. Sindhi culture is characterized by its music, dance, literature, and distinctive craftsmanship.

Traditional Sindhi music, often accompanied by the harmonious strains of the sitar and tabla, reflects the region’s Sufi traditions and features genres such as Sufi Kalaam and Leva. The famous Sindhi folk dance, Dhamal, is performed on joyous occasions and cultural festivities, bringing together people from all walks of life.

The Sindhi language, spoken by the majority of the population, is known for its melodious and poetic qualities. Sindhi literature has a rich body of poetry, folk tales, and novels that dive deep into the region’s history, culture, and social issues.

Sindh is also renowned for its intricate handicrafts and artwork. Ajrak, a traditional block-printed textile, is a symbol of Sindhi identity and is often worn during special occasions.

6.Kot Diji Fort

The city of Khairpur is also home to Kot Diji Fort, one of the largest representations of the Talpur dynasty in the area. According to historical documents, the fort was constructed a century ago in one of Sindh’s most remote regions. It is referred to as the Kot Diji Fort because it dominates the town of Kot Diji in the Khairpur district and is an iconic part of the enormous fort. The Kot Diji Fort, which boasts a stunning design, was built over the course of ten years, from 1785 to 1795.

With three well-constructed, roughly 50-foot-tall towers, it seems to be one of the most imposing forts in all of Pakistan. The uppermost portion of the fort is surrounded by 30-foot-high walls. The boundary measures about 1.8 kilometers in length overall. Limestone and kiln-baked bricks were used to construct the fort. In order to store and use potable water, one of the region’s limited resources, the fort was strategically outfitted with a water reservoir.

With three carefully arranged turrets that are around 50 feet tall, it seems to be one of the most imposing forts in Pakistan. The fort’s outside walls, which encircle its highest point, are 30 feet tall. Around 1.8 kilometers make up the entire boundaries. Kiln-baked bricks and limestone were used to construct the fort. Additionally, the fort was strategically outfitted with a water reservoir for the storage and use of drinkable water, one of the region’s rare resources.

Unfortunately, there haven’t been many restoration and maintenance efforts made to preserve this marvel of architecture, which is why the fort is aging and losing its character with time. The Fort of Kot Diji should be at the top of your list if you’re looking for interesting sites to visit in Sindh and want a close-up view of the area’s history. The M9 Motorway and National Highway 5 route would take you there in around seven hours if you came from Karachi.

This fort’s history began during the first decade of the nineteenth century. Semi-circular bastions are positioned at various intervals along the fortification walls, which add to the exterior’s attractiveness. The fortification walls are patterned up and down to follow the natural curves of the hilly meadows.

Only three of the structure’s four sides are surrounded by a defensive wall, while the northern side is shielded from view by towering hillocks.

One of Sindh’s most well-known historical locations is Mohenjo Daro, where several antiquated items have been found. Toys, jewelry, and other tools made of materials like stone and copper are among them, as well as sculptures, measuring devices like balance scales and weights, and toys. The Mohenjo Daro museum, located about 800 meters from the historic city of Mohenjo Daro, is where these items are displayed.

10.Makli Graveyard

In Pakistan’s southern Sindh province, Makli Graveyard is a sizable cemetery close to the Indus River delta. In the space of about 10 km2, there are 500,000 tombs and burials. One of the biggest cemeteries in the world is at Makli. In brick or stone tombs, some of which are lavishly decorated with glazed tiles, kings, queens, governors, saints, thinkers, and philosophers are buried here. It is a superb example of Sindh’s culture between the 14th and the 18th centuries.

Inside the property’s boundaries are all the features and elements necessary to portray its Outstanding Universal Value.

11.Shah Jahan Mosque

The Shah Jahan Mosque serves as the Jamia Mosque for the city of Thatta and is one of the most beautiful examples of Mughal architecture in the area. In the year 1644, work on this stunning historical site got underway. Shah Jahan, the Mughal Emperor, authorized the mosque’s construction while living in Thatta, which is why it bears his name. This spectacular building was constructed over more than three years. After it was finished, the masjid’s gates were formally opened.

The architecture of the Shah Jahan Mosque has been influenced by regional building styles such as Sindhi, Timurid, Persian, and Indian. It does so compellingly to the Mughal era’s building practices.

Red bricks were used to build the mosque’s construction on the inside and out. Still, the interior is additionally decorated with elaborate tile work and geometric designs that add to its allure. The Shah Jahan Mosque is distinguished by having the most domes seen on a single building in Pakistan on its façade, one of its special qualities.

The main prayer hall is regarded as the crown jewel and has a gorgeous facade made of blue, turquoise, and magenta tiles. When it comes to the dome’s inside, it features a lovely combination of complementary hues with traces of red, white, and yellow in the background. Numerous smaller domes and arches may be seen all around the courtyard because Shah Jahan Mosque has almost 100 domes. Amazing geometrically built masonry patterns may also be seen across the area. The mosque is among the top tourist attractions in Sindh, thanks to all these distinctive qualities.

The eastern edge of Thatta is where the Shah Jahan Mosque is situated.

12.Fazi Mahal

One of Sindh’s most historically significant areas is where the city of Khairpur is situated. Khairpur, which was once governed by the Talpur Mirs, is home to some of Sindh’s most well-known tourist attractions. A good example of this is Faiz Mahal. One of the Talpur Dynasty’s emperors built the building around 1798. Faiz Mahal doesn’t appear or feel like a two-hundred-year-old building, though, if we look at the way it is right now, both inside and out. A very difficult and physically taxing undertaking is keeping a centuries-old structure’s individuality and curb appeal.

The credit for Faiz Mahal, on the other hand, falls to the Talpur family’s heirs, in addition to the tireless efforts of the Sindh Tourism Development Corporation (STDC). The magnificent citadel’s architecture is still intact and in its original form because the monument is painstakingly preserved.

The Talpur kings’ court was previously located in Faiz Mahal. It included a chamber for the ruler and sixteen waiting areas for courtiers and other royal figures. Guest rooms were built next to the darbar and dining hall to make it easier for royal visitors to remain there.

When you enter the Faiz Mahal’s main hall, which is in the center of the structure, you will see pictures of the Maharajas and Talpur princes. The building’s exterior and interior have been created using the majestic patterns of Mughal architecture, which are Awe-inspiring.

The palace’s appeal is enhanced by some of the best artwork and distinctive calligraphy. The location is well-known for hosting the filming of numerous locally produced plays and films because it is one of Sindh’s most historically significant tourist destinations. If you follow the Karachi-Hyderabad M9 Motorway and National Highway 5 route, it will take about six hours to go from Karachi to Faiz Mahal.

13.The Sukur Barrage

The huge Indus River, one of Pakistan’s most well-known rivers, is where Sukkur Barrage is situated. The Lloyd Barrage was its original name when it was built in the 1900s while the British Raj was in power. Given the region’s extremely low yearly rainfall, Sukkur Barrage is crucial in distributing water for agriculture purposes. The Nara Canal, Mirwah Canal, Rohri Canal, Abul Wah Canal, Dadu Canal, Rice Canal, and Kirthar Canal are some of the seven canals that flow through it. On the right side are Dadu Canal, Rice Canal, and Kirthar Canal.

You can travel Sukkur after visiting this picnic area because the city is home to several well-known landmarks. To travel to Sukkur Barrage from Karachi, you must use National Highway 5 and the M9 Karachi-Hyderabad Motorway. By car, the trip will take seven hours

14.Kirthar National Park

The second-largest wildlife reserve in Pakistan is Kirthar National Park, established in 1974. The national park is home to some of the rarest wildlife species on earth, according to official data. These animals include ibex, wolves, gazelles, chinkara, leopards, and striped hyenas. Three different animal sanctuaries, including Hub Dam Wildlife Sanctuary, Mahal Kohistan Wildlife Sanctuary, and Kirthar itself, make up the roughly 3000 sq km of Kirthar National Park. A minimum of four game reserves, including Eri, Surjan, Hothiano, and Sumbak, are also inside the park.

Kirthar National Park has two designated tourist centers, Khar and Karchat, where you can spend a night or two to help travelers with their overnight stay. The Sindh Wildlife Department is in charge of maintaining the national park. This includes documenting species, maintaining the park, ensuring effective administration of the area’s tourism industry, and issuing special permits.

15.Sehwan Sharif

The shrine of well-known Sufi saint and poet Lal Shahbaz Qalandar is located in Sehwan, one of Sindh’s most well-liked tourist spots. The shrine’s interior is decorated with shimmering mirrors and colorful mosaic. At the same time, the atmosphere outdoors changes depending on the time of day you visit, ranging from quiet meditation to thunderous alien ceremonial.

To pay respects to the Qalandar, pilgrims came. Lal Shahbaz is one of the most revered of all the Sufi musicians and poets who spread Islam throughout South Asia hundreds of years ago. Every year, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims spend at least three days at the Sufi shrine in the little town of Sehwan.

The best food in the city is served at the Sehwan Restaurant, which is connected to the Hotel Sehwan Divine, the nicest hotel in Sehwan. Additionally, security has increased greatly in recent years. International visitors to the shrine complex might be escorted by a security guard, even though it is just as safe to visit as any other important location in Pakistan.

16.Thar Desert

Their eyes light up when foreign tourists discuss Thar. It is simple to understand why Thar charms tourists: breathtaking sunsets, lush, green landscapes after monsoon rains, and flashes of colorful saris amid parched desert dunes. The Tharparkar district as a whole is alluring; its distinctive landscape will grab your attention.

The districts of Tharparkar, Umerkot, and Mirpurkhas are home to the Thar Desert. Driving from Karachi’s city center to the Tharparkar region takes six to eight hours. Tharparkar is close to Makli, Badin, and Kalo City. Why not stop in one of these cities on your way to the desert if you’re planning a trip there? Since the roads leading to this tourist destination in Sindh are mostly paved, you won’t have too much trouble covering the distance.

The Thar Desert in Sindh is best reached by car or four-wheel-drive (4×4) jeep. Make sure you bring a language-fluent translator with you. It would be helpful if the person had been to and looked about the area before. Unfortunately, getting there is not simple for a solo traveler. You wouldn’t want to miss visiting this magnificent place, would you? So it would be best if you gave Manaky this task.

17.Shrine of Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai

In the Pakistani town of Bhit Shah, in the Sindh province, there is a Sufi shrine called the Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai Shrine. One of Sindh’s most important shrines is the one in question. The yearly Urs celebration is attended by up to 500,000 people.

Malangs dressed in black who play Sufi qawwali music frequently appear within its walls. Brightly dressed pilgrims stop by Bhitai’s tomb all year long to pray and pay their respects. In and of itself, the shrine is a sight to behold. The minute details that may be found in every nook and cranny are intricate enough to cause one to become lost. To truly understand the area’s religious variety, you can also stop by the Gurdwara Shah, a Sikh gurdwara at a short walk from the Sufi shrine.

Bhit Shah is a tiny village with limited hotel options. The Madan Faqeer Eco Resort is a budget-friendly choice, which costs roughly 4,000 PKR for a twin room. However, there is a generator and air conditioning, and the rooms are cozy. Even better, the structure houses a music school where you can watch students and instructors performing the traditional instruments used in qawwali.

18.Sachal Sarmast Shrine

Modern-day Pakistani poet Sachal Sarmast, sometimes known as Sacho Sarmast, was a well-known and acclaimed Sindhi Sufi poet. A three-day urs, or feast, honoring Sachal Sarmast’s passing is held in Daraza Sharif beginning on the 13th day of Ramadan. It features musical performances based on his poems and a literary conference.

It is highly recommended to visit this little, charming shrine in Daraza Sharif. People congregate in the peaceful Sufi shrine, about an hour from Sukkur, to pay homage at the poet’s tomb. If you’re fortunate, you might catch a qawwali recital while you’re there.

19.PAF Museum

The Pakistan Air Force Museum is a must-see if you enjoy flying and all things aviation-related. The Pakistan Air Force has utilized a variety of aircraft, including planes, jets, radars, and weapons over the years, particularly during the war with India in 1965. The show also includes several contemporary aircraft as well as scale models from World Wars 1 and 2. Additionally, the main park offers eating options, and the gardens offer lots of spots to unwind.

20.Empress Market

The Empress Market is a vibrant yet chaotic marketplace where everything and everything is for sale. To escape rush hour, it’s good to go to this attraction first thing in the morning. The foyers and interiors of this colonial-era building provide a wide variety of foodstuffs, live animals and pets, fabrics, stationery, and other goods. The structure bears Queen Victoria’s name, who was the Empress of India at the time.

The Best Places To Visit In Sindh Pakistan

Last month I travelled all over Pakistan and I shared a lot on my Instagram. (If you use the app, I would appreciate the follow 🙂 And now it is time to share it on the blog! Today I am showing you the best places to visit in Sindh Pakistan.

Put the press aside, apply for that difficult-to-get visa and save for a potentially very expensive flight. But once you arrive, let nature, adventure and friendly smiles blow you away. Yes, I still recommend visiting Pakistan even after a terrible incident that happened on my last day. Just avoid @pakistaninternationalairlinepk and you should be good. I mean can you believe an airline has NOT operated a route for 6 months but still selling flight tickets online!!! And when you figure that flight doesn’t exist, you have to pay $600 for the new flight on the same day just so you can leave the country! That is any and all traveller’s nightmare. And it’s not just about the money, it’s the inconvenience and difficult situation I was in at 3 in the morning with no help! I have sent a message to the airline but no response. Been 4 days, no refund, no compensation no answers. How do you think this should be resolved? Pakistan is not on everyone’s bucket list but I can see that slowly changing in the coming years. I suggest putting the negative press aside, paying for perhaps hard to get a visa, saving up for that potentially expensive flight and seeing for yourself. Let the jaw-dropping views, interesting culture, history and friendly people blow you away!

Pakistan has 4 provinces Sindh, Balochistan, Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa; two autonomous territories (Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan) and one federal territory (Islamabad Capital Territory). Sindh is the third largest province of Pakistan by area, the second largest province by population after Punjab and its capital city is called Karachi.

You can easily get here from Karachi or Hyderabad on a day trip. The mosque is well maintained and mostly in original construction and colours. There were some people sleeping on the floor because it is cooler inside.

Keenjhar Lake is the second-largest freshwater lake in Pakistan and an important source of drinking water for Thatta District and Karachi city. It is so big that you cannot see the end of the lake anywhere while standing at the shore. It looks almost like a sea!

I would not recommend visiting the lake on a weekend as many people come to take bath in the lake and have their meals there with families, mostly in temporary tent-like structures. There are tyres and life jackets available for those who cannot swim. Plenty of boats are there to take you to the middle of the lake or to Noor’s shrine.

In this Post: – Best Tourist Destinations in Thatta – Why is Thatta Called the City of Kings – Getting Souvenirs from Thatta

Often dubbed as the ‘Rome of Pakistan’, Thatta is an ancient city of Sindh. It served as the capital and a seat of power for three dynasties, then it was later ruled by the Mughal Emperors, and thus it always remained at the centre stage, enjoying the status of being one of the most prominent cities in Sindh.

Thatta has the honour of hosting one of the largest necropolises in the world – the Makli Graveyard – which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The beautiful blue tiled mosque built by Emperor Shahjahan speaks volumes about the expert craftsmanship of Sindh’s masons and labourers. Check out this video presented by the Sindh Tourism Development Corporation (STDC) before we take you through some of the best tourist destinations in Thatta.

Some of the Best Tourist Destinations in Thatta You Must Visit

People from all over the world visit Thatta to delve deep into history and marvel at the intricate carvings on stone and tiles that adorn the historical buildings. Let us take a look at some of the best tourist destinations in Thatta in detail.

Keenjhar Lake

Haleji lake.

  • Museum in Bhanbhore

Makli Hill Necropolis

  • Old Jamia Masjid Thatta

Soonda Graveyard

Maqam qadam shah graveyard, tomb of sultan ibrahim, nawab ameer khani mosque, shahjahan mosque, dabgir mosque, kalan kot fort.

Thatta is not only home to Sindh’s historical buildings, but it also provides ample opportunities for watersports activities. People who love jet-skiing and swimming head over to one of the largest freshwater lakes in Pakistan to take a dip in the cool waters of Keenjhar Lake.

Local people also call it the Kalri Lake because they believe that it is not only Keenjhar Lake, but two lakes i.e. Sonehri and Keenjhar are merged into one large lake, which is 24 km long and around 6km wide. The best part about visiting Keenjhar Lake is that you get to see the migratory birds in their natural habitat. Storks, Ibises, Waders, Flamingos, Coots, Geese and Sea-gulls can be seen swooping down Keenjhar Lake. It has also been termed as a Ramsar Site, which means it is a protected wetland site under the international treaty for the conservation of wetlands called the Ramsar Convention. 

While some people enjoy the calming atmosphere of the lake, others look for adventure-filled activities like boating deep into the sea. There are plenty of opportunities for those who would rather jet-ski than spend time bird-watching. From boat rides, jet-skiing, fishing, swimming to bird-watching, Keenjhar Lake offers it all. You can also check out some of the best fishing spots in Karachi .

One of the best tourist destinations in Thatta is Keenjhar Lake

Grave of Noori Jam Tamachi and the Interesting Backstory Behind it

The prominent grave of Noori Jam Tamachi is also situated in the middle of Keenjhar Lake. There is a folklore associated with it. Jam Tamachi was a prince belonging to the Samma dynasty and ruled Sindh from 1367 to 1379. He fell deeply in love with a fisherwoman, Noori and married her. Unlike other sad stories of love, the tale or Noori Jam Tamachi is a successful one. The prince loved her so much that she enjoyed more powers and status than the other wives of Jam Tamachi who belonged to the royal bloodline.

How to get to Keenjhar Lake

Once you reach there, you can get a boat ride starting from PKR 500 and going to PKR 2000, depending upon the duration and timing of the boat rides. There are different cabana style huts that can be rented for as low as PKR 100-PKR 500 for a day, depending upon which day of the week you visited Keenjhar Lake.

Haleji Lake is visited by tourists

Located around 85 kms from Karachi, Haleji Lake is one of the largest bird sanctuaries in Asia. From November to February, scores of migratory birds from Siberia flock at the lake to take refuge.

When the temperatures in Russia drop to -30 degree centigrade, the birds in search of warmer climates take the International Migratory Route Number 4, also known as the Indus Flyway, where the migratory birds track the Indus River and enter Sindh, swooping down on various wetlands in Sindh. Haleji Lake has seen waterfowls like spot-billed duck, pheasant-tailed jacana and cotton teal.

Around 200 various species of birds have been recorded at Haleji Lake. It is also a great fishing spot in Sindh and people buy a kit from a nearby shop to enjoy fishing at the lake. The serenity and calmness of Haleji Lake will leave you inspired for long.

Museum in Bhanbhore 

If you are coming from Karachi, it would take you around 2 hours to reach the ancient city of Bhanbhore, which lies on the coast of Debal Beach. At a fort in Debal, Mohammad Bin Qasim, the mighty Arab general had defeated Hindu Raja Dahir in 711 CE. 

If you are a history buff, then you shouldn’t miss a chance of visiting the archaeological museum of Bhanbhore. It was built in 1967 and hosts some of the rarest artefacts. A miniature painting depicting the war between Mohammad Bin Qasim and Raja Dahir can be seen at the museum.

There are storage jars, silver and copper coins, metal objects, glazed pottery with Kufic inscription, kitchen utensils, precious stones, terracotta vases and miscellaneous objects belonging to the Brahmanical period are also kept at the museum. The city of Bhanbhore is one of the best tourist destinations in Thatta where foreign visitors are particularly intrigued by the archaeological discoveries of the city. 

Visiting hours: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Open all days a week, except for Wednesdays.

Entrance Fee: PKR 20 for adults, PKR 10 for kids aged 6-12 years, and for foreigners it is PKR 300.

The tomb of Jam Nizamuddin holds great historical significance

One of the best tourist destinations in Thatta is Makli Hill necropolis. It is one of the largest graveyards of the world dating back to the 14 th  century. A UNESCO World Heritage Site , this ancient necropolis consists of several queens, kings and prominent figures belonging to that era. Many historians are of the view that around 1 million people have been buried at the site from the 14 th to the 18 th century.

The biggest graveyards of the world, Makli Hills lies around 98 kms towards the east of Karachi. The intricate carvings on yellow sandstone make the graves unique. Some tombs also feature the blue-tile work that is characteristic of Sindh. 

These graves depict Islamic, Persian and Hindu style-artwork reflecting that people belonging to various religions and civilizations have been buried here and thus the Makli necropolis holds great importance, especially for history buffs. It is recommended to hire a local guide available at the entrance and also a van because the graveyard is spread over a sprawling 10 kms of land. If you have any questions prior to the visit you can contact Mr. Sarfaraz Jatoi of The Sindh Tourism Development Corporation at 92-333-2750124. 

Old Jamia Masjid

The yellow sandstone Old Jamia Masjid is a hot favourite among tourists

This is the first mosque built on Makli by Jam Tamachi, the ruler of Samma dynasty. Although the mosque now shows signs of deterioration, the massive brick arches speak volumes about the building’s grandeur. The mosque was built to pay homage to a Sufi saint.

One of the best places to visit in Thatta is Soonda Graveyard

Along the Thatta-Hyderabad highway lies a small funerary site called the Soonda graveyard, which is one of the best tourist destinations in Thatta. The structure and intricate carving of yellow sandstone remind us of another ancient necropolis in Karachi – the Chaukhandi Tombs . Although Soonda graveyard is relatively small as compared to the massive Makli Hills necropolis, it receives foreign tourists and visitors all year round.

Just like the Chaukhandi Tombs, the graves belonging to women have intricate carvings of jewelry and earrings etc. The tombs of warriors show a carved horse and a spear. Additional slabs are laid on the top of the grave depicting that a warrior is buried in this grave.

As mentioned in a book Tuhfat-ul-Karam, the village Soonda was founded by Jam Tamachi in the 14th century. Before the village was founded, a saint used to live there who had great affection for the raga Sondra, from where the village derived its name.

Historians also reveal that the Soonda village was held in high regard by Muslims because a noble family of saints, the Makhdums had lived there. Some of the notable names in this regard are Mullah Ari, Mullah Abu Bakar, Makhdum Ramzan Vedani and Mullah Bayazid.

Some of the best places to visit in Thatta

Spread over 37 acres of land, Maqam Qadam Shah Graveyard is situated in Goth Raj Malik which comprises some tombs that were built using yellow sandstone. These graves belong to the 17th & 18th centuries A.D. 

The intricate carvings of the sandstone and the detailed geometrical patterns and designs on these graves reflect that the tombs were built on the same pattern as those of Chaukhandi Tombs. Foreign tourists who visit the place are particularly intrigued by the carefully crafted stone graves. Before you plan to visit Maqam Qadam Shah Graveyard, do call the local watchman, Mr. Sikander Kalmati at 92-322 2130643.

One of the best tourist destinations in thatta

The 424-year old tomb of Mir Sultan Ibrahim who was a ruler belonging to the Turkhan Dynasty holds great historic significance. Apart from the ancient background of the grave, the intricate blue-tile work having Arabic and Islamic inscriptions is characteristic of the Sindhi architecture.

Made of bricks in an octagonal structure, the tomb reflects the expertise and masterful craftsmanship of the labourers at the time. A pointed dome at the top is set upon a high drum, showing that a king is buried here. 

The mosque was built by a prominent governor of Thatta, Nawab Ameer Khan back in 1629, during King Shahjahan’s period. It is a square brick structure hosting a Persian style dome at the top. The white and light blue glazed tiles that once adorned the mosque’s dome are slowly diminishing. However, the mosque’s interior contains some of the most elaborate and intricate displays of glazed tile work. There are stylish floral patterns adorning the walls of the mosque. 

From Karachi’s city centre, it would take around 2 hours to reach this historically significant Nawab Ameer Khani Mosque in Thatta. 

One of the best tourist destinations in Thatta is Shahjahan Mosque

One of the famous places to visit in Thatta is the Shahjahan Mosque. This 17 th century old mosque has great historical significance because it was built by Emperor Shahjahan himself. Also known as the Jamia Masjid of Thatta, it is considered to have some of the most elaborate and detailed tile works in South Asia.

When you walk through the mosque you would be reminded of the glorious Mughal-era as each tile in the mosque is carefully designed. The Shahjahan Mosque has an interesting backstory as well. When Shahjahan had rebelled against his father Jehangir, he sought refuge in Thatta. The people of Sindh warmly welcomed him and tried their best to help Shahjahan feel at home. Impressed by the hospitality of the people of Sindh, Shahjahan built a beautiful mosque as a token of gratitude and appreciation. 

Domes in Shahjahan Mosque

The detailed tile work in the mosque reflects Timurid influences, Turkic and Persian styles. The main dome of the Shahjahan Mosque has intricately designed tiles arranged in a stellate pattern, so when you look up you will feel that you are standing under a night sky.

What is unique about Shahjahan Mosque is that there are no minarets and around 93 domes, which is the largest number of domes for any mosque in Pakistan. The mosque was on the tentative UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993. It is located approximately 100 kms away from Karachi.

The historic city of Thatta has an old mosque

Situated at the outskirts of Thatta city, Dabgir Mosque was built by Amir Khusro Khan, who was a descendant of Changez Khan. During his childhood days, he was enslaved by Mirza Isa. Later, he broke all the shackles and became the Incharge of Thatta.

During his reign, he built many buildings including mosques, bridges and wells. Dabgir Mosque was built in 1688 AD. It has one large and two smaller domes. The salty soil of Sindh has affected the building’s outlook, but in the remnants you can still see the delicate brickwork that show the skillful mastery of the labourers at the time. Foreign tourists visiting Thatta never miss a chance of exploring Dabgir Mosque.

Kalan Kot Fort is one of the best places to visit in Thatta

Located near 5 kms from Makli Hills is an ancient fort, named the Kalan Kot Fort. As per a book, Tarikh-i-Masumi, the fort was constructed by Mirza Jani Baig in the 16 th century.

It was built to take refuge during important battles fought during that period. Some historians claim that the fort is more than 350 years old and it was in use up until the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb ruled India.

Why is Thatta called the City of Kings?

Thatta is often dubbed as the ancient City of Kings because of the numerous emperors and kings who ruled the land and are also buried there. Thatta was the capital city of three dynasties. The first dynasty was the Samma Dynasty ruling from 1335 to 1520 AD.

Then came the Arghun Dynasty reigning from 1520-1555 and the third dynasty that ruled Thatta was that of Targhan Dynasty ruling the city from 1555 to 1665 AD. You can find the tombs and mausoleums of the various rulers, scholars and saints belonging to these dynasties at the Makli Hill necropolis. The tomb of the founding ruler of Samma Dynasty, Jam Unner is still present in Makli. Similarly, the tombs of rulers from other dynasties, Jam Tamachi and Jam Nindo or Jam Nizamuddin are also in this historical site. The main entrance of Jam Nizamuddin’s tomb has Jodhpuri stone imported from Gujrat, India.

Later, the city was ruled by the Muslim Emperors of the Mughal-era. You can see monuments and buildings that reflect the grandeur of the emperors and their lifestyle. The Shahjahan Mosque is one such example of the glorious Muslim rule.

Getting Souvenirs from Thatta

If you are visiting Thatta, you might want to carry a token that could remind you of your wonderful time spent at the historic city. The Shahi Bazaar in Thatta is a long alley containing several shops where you could find all kinds of souvenirs and gifts that you could take with you. You can get the inlaid mirror work that Sindh is famous for. The bazaar is famous for hand printed fabrics, Sindhi embroidery work and glass bangles. 

Souvenirs to take from Thatta

One of the best souvenirs from Thatta that you shouldn’t miss taking with you are the colourful Kedona Dolls made by the local women. There are small to large dolls available. You can get a large doll in PKR 4000 and a small doll in around PKR 1500. You can contact their FB page: Thatta Kedona.

So, this was a comprehensive guide on visiting Thatta, the land of ancient kings. If you are a history enthusiast then do check out the other historical sites in Sindh which you must visit.

Tours and travel guides for Sindh

Want to get off the beaten track in Pakistan? Or are you looking for where to travel in Pakistan during winter? Look no further - this Sindh province travel guide has everything you need to know about where to go in Pakistan's southernmost province.

Might be useful? Pin it!

Sindh province is a mystery to many.

Though it’s one of Pakistan’s most (religiously) diverse provinces, domestic and foreign tourists alike avoid its vast plains. Some fear danger, susceptible to its outdated reputation as a land of bandits and terrorists. Others are simply too preoccupied with Pakistan’s mountainous north to give the southern plains a moment of thought.

In reality, there’s good news and bad news to the Sindhi situation.

The troubles of traveling Sindh (as a foreigner)  

Let’s start with the bad news: Sindh isn’t the easiest place to travel in, simply because so few people choose to do so. When few travel there, people aren’t used to tourists.

Security officials get their panties in a twist when they see rogue foreigners wandering around. Most hotels will not accept foreign visitors due to security concerns . Transportation is often slow or unreliable, and the province is scorching hot for much of the year. Mix in a lack of information about what to see and how to get there, and you have a recipe for a fat headache.

(Oh, and if you’re a solo female traveler —foreign or local—you’re going to stand out like crazy when you do anything on your own. Beware, stares of interior Sindhi dudes can poke holes in your soul.)

Sindhi dudes doing what they do best: staring

Why you should visit Sindh anyway

Staring dudes, nowhere to sleep, scorching heat, and security stalkers? Alex, this place sounds wretched.

Hold your horses. Obviously Sindh is worth a bit of challenge, else I wouldn’t bother recommending it to you!

On to the good news: Sindh isn’t as dangerous as some may lead you to believe, and it’s an adventure traveler’s dream.

Sindh is practically overflowing with myriad cultures and historical places. Jains, Hindus, Sikhs, and Muslims all reside within the province. Crumbling remains of forgotten forts and mosques wait by roadsides, while towering forts and majestic mahals still loom over the land.

Exploring a forgotten fort near Thatta with my friend Aamish

Visitors can scale mountains akin to sleeping dragons, and roam through vast deserts colored rainbow by textiles of women on their way to wells. Every time I visit I learn of more places I want to visit; in my Google Maps, Sindh is an explosion of marked places to see.

A final argument if that doesn’t sell you: many cities in Sindh have legal “wine shops” where you can simply rock up and buy yourself a bottle or some beers. I know that tickles some of your alcoholic tastebuds!

Best time of year to visit Sindh

Now that I’ve convinced you to give Sindh a try, let’s talk about how to avoid death by heat in during your trip.

Sindh is hot like fire. Two of my visits to Sindh were in May, the peak of summertime in Pakistan and absolutely the worst time to visit the province.

I experienced temperatures nearing 50°C, and must say that I do not recommend summer travel in Sindh. Let’s pretend it didn’t take me several visits to figure that one out.

If you want to actually enjoy your explorations of the province/not die from heat stroke, plan a winter trip.

Winter starts a bit after the end of the monsoon season that loosely runs from July to September. Temperatures begin to “cool” around October (if temperatures in the 20-30°C range count as cool to you) and winter goes on until February or so.

Top places to visit in Sindh  

Now that I’ve convinced you that Sindh is totally worth visiting, here’s a few suggestions about places to visit in Sindh, Pakistan.

Remember this isn’t an end-all list; there are many more places to explore. These are meant to be a starting point for your planning.

Karachi’s iconic tripper buses

Every traveler in Pakistan and their mother knows Karachi is in Sindh, so I don’t need to go too deeply into this. Whether it’s the starting point of your journey, a place to find some modern comforts midway, or your final destination, travelers visiting Sindh inevitably pass through Karachi at one point or another.

While there, feast your way around the Burns Road area, Karachi’s most famous food street(s). Chill on the grass outside the colonial Frere Hall… and pick up a book if the Sunday book bazaar is going on. Hop a ride on one of the multitude of psychedelic buses hurdling down its ways. Lose yourself in the cacophony of the old neighborhood of Sadar. Find some coastal chill away from the crowds at Mubarak Beach, or immerse yourself in the circus that is (filthy) Clifton Beach. Swap modernity for history during a day trip to Chaukaundi tombs on the outskirts of the city.

There are plenty of resources online about things to do in Karachi, so seek those out for more details.

Where to stay in Karachi

Karachi has a variety of guesthouses, but though no good budget options. Make sure note the location when picking accommodation in Karachi—traffic can be dense at the best of times, and you can easily lose many an hour attempting to traverse the city. Better to stay in a neighborhood close to the city center, such as Clifton.

  • Budget: Nothing in Karachi stands out in terms of good value for money, but there are a few guesthouses listed on Booking.com for less than US$25 per night.
  • Mid-range: I stayed at Mariner’s Base Apartments on my second trip to Karachi, and was very pleased with their spacious apartments and central location of the building.
  • Luxury: The Movenpick Hotel is the nicest hotel in Karachi, and relatively cheap compared to Movenpicks in other countries.

Makli & Thatta

If you’re coming from Karachi, Thatta is a logical next step that can be visited during a day trip or a proper overnight adventure.

Though Thatta isn’t much to look at, architectural perfection is found in the form of the famous Shah Jehan mosque. Mughal archways line its courtyard, surrounding a stunning blue mosaic central chamber. It’s a cool escape from the desert city vibes outside.

Nearby Thatta is the UNESCO-listed Makli Necropolis , one of the largest necropolises in the world. Ornate graves and tombs stretch for kilometers. Some require you to ask for a caretaker’s help in getting in, others you can poke around in yourself. Don’t miss the vivid green Shrine of Hazrat Abdullah Shah Ashabi inside the necropolis area.

Where to stay in Makli & Thatta

There are a few dingy budget hotels along Thatta’s main road. But the only hotel that accepts foreigners is the SRO Guesthouse near Makli Necropolis run by the very friendly Ghulam Khwaja. In 2016, a double room cost 3,000 PKR per night, and included an AC, a comfy bed, and a large TV.

A bus outside a university in Hyderabad

Sindh’s second biggest city is a bit of a madhouse, but it does host some pretty colonial buildings. Go for a stroll around the center city—don’t get run over by any vehicles, mind you—nom some Hyderabadi dum biryani , or spend some time chilling by the famous river Indus.

For most tourists, Hyderabad’s appeal lies mostly in the fact that it’s a strategic transit hub to other locations in Sindh. If you’re venturing to the Thar desert, or heading further into interior Sindh to places like Ranikot or Sehwan Sharif, you’ll likely pass through Hyderabad.

Where to stay in Hyderabad

  • Budget: Al Rehman Guesthouse accepts foreigners, and has rooms for US$20 or less per night.
  • Mid-range to upscale: Hotel Indus will run you around US$70 per night, but at least you won’t have to worry about security—they accept foreign guests.

Sindh travel guide - Sunset at Gorakh Hill Station with boy standing on a cliff - Lost With Purpose travel blog

Sunset at Gorakh Hill Station

Gorakh Hill Station

Mountains in Sindh? Say what?!

Yep, it’s true. The Kirthar mountains divide the provinces of Sindh and Balochistan. Gorakh Hill is one of the highest points along the range, clocking in at 1,734 meters (5,689 ft).

Accessible only by a two-hour jeep ride from nearby Wahi Pandi village, the views from the top of the hill are stunning, as is the view of the stars once the sun sets. The steep cliffs look their best in the daylight—the sunset catches them nicely—but I highly recommend an overnight stay on a clear night for a full Gorakh experience.

Caution: it gets chilly at night! Do pack warm clothes, especially if visiting in winter.

Where to stay at Gorakh Hill Station

There are one or two guesthouses near the viewpoint at the top of the hill, such as Gorakh Restaurant and Summer Huts . You can also find tents for rent during warmer months.

Sindh travel guide - Urs crowds at the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan Sharif, Pakistan - Lost With Purpose travel blog

Crowds at the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar during his urs celebrations

Sehwan Sharif

One of my favorite stops in Sindh, Sehwan is home to the shrine of the famous Sufi saint and poet Lal Shahbaz Qalandar. Glittering mirrors and colorful mosaic line every inch of the shrine’s interior, and the mood of the courtyard outside varies between quiet contemplation and pounding otherworldly ritual depending on the time of day you visit.

Unfortunately, the shrine was the location of one of Pakistan’s deadliest suicide bombings in recent years. Security at the shrine has since increased exponentially. Though I believe the shrine is as safe to visit as any other major site in Pakistan, foreign visitors may be escorted by a security guard when visiting the shrine complex.

Where to stay in Sehwan Sharif

  • Budget: According to the Pakistan Traveler guidebook , Dum Dastagir Resthouse (+923072195833) on Dargah Road offers basic rooms at extremely low rates.
  • Mid-range: Hotel Sehwan Divine is the nicest hotel in Sehwan, and the attached Sehwan Restaurant offers AC as well as the cleanest food in Sehwan.

Sindh travel guide - Man in a trance at the shrine of Sufi poet Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai in Bhit Shah, Pakistan - Lost With Purpose travel blog

Music and ritual at the shrine of Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai

Another town around another important Sufi shrine: the mazar of the poet Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai.

Black-clothed malangs can often be found playing Sufi qawwali music within its walls. Brightly colored pilgrims come to pray and pay their respects at the tomb of Bhitai all year ‘round. The shrine itself is a wonder to behold—I could easily lose myself in the intricate details found in every nook and cranny.

To fully take in the religious diversity of the region, you can also check out the Gurdwara Shah , a Sikh gurdwara a stone’s throw away from the Sufi shrine.

Sindh travel guide - Shrine of Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai in Bhit Shah, Pakistan - Lost With Purpose travel blog

Where to stay in Bhit Shah

Bhit Shah is a small town with limited accommodation options. I stayed at the Madan Faqeer Eco Resort , which was a bit costly for this backpacker at about 4,000 PKR for a double room. However, rooms were comfortable, and it did have a generator and AC. Even better, there’s a music school within the building where you can watch students and teachers practice the traditional instruments used for qawwali in the shrine across the street.

If you’re on a tight budget, you might be allowed sleep overnight for free in the shrine itself, or request accommodation at the gurdwara. Note that you might have an issue bringing larger bags in, as there are security checks on the shrine’s perimeters.

Sindh travel guide - Brick ruins at Moenjo-daro - Lost With Purpose travel blog

A maze of ruins at Moenjo-daro, which means “mound of the dead men” in Sindhi

Moenjo-daro

Stroll back into the BCE at Sindh’s most famous historical site: Moenjo-daro. Established in 2,500 BCE-ish, this was once one of the Indus Valley civilization’s largest cities. Despite being a hub of trade and thought, its occupants mysteriously disappeared around 1,900 BCE. Buddhists eventually moved into the space several hundred years later.

In the modern era, it’s a UNESCO-listed archaeological site at risk of destruction . Decades of neglect have damaged its walls, and high salinity and increasingly extreme temperatures are corroding what’s left. Archaeologists have actually stopped digging at the site, in the hopes of preserving the remainder by leaving it under the sands.

The more people who visit (responsibly), the better—it will bring attention to the region and encourage officials to take a more serious stance about preserving the site.

Sindh travel guide - Alex walking on the ruins in Moenjo Daro - Lost With Purpose travel blog

Where to stay in Moenjo-daro  

Moenjo-daro isn’t actually in a town; the closest town is Larkana. Unfortunately if not unsurprisingly, Larkana is not very tourist-friendly town, and many foreigners report being assigned a security guard while there.

There is reportedly a PTDC Motel near Moenjo-daro, though you’ll want to call ahead to confirm there’s space for you: +92 744084009.

Alternatively, there are a few cheap hotels in Sukkur, 1.5 hours away, that accept foreign travelers. Try Sindh Faran Hotel or Mehran Hotel if you’re on a budget; they should have rooms for around 2,000 PKR per night.

Sindh travel guide - Jain temple in Nagarparkar, Pakistan - Lost With Purpose travel blog

Thar desert  

Many a local traveler’s eyes sparkle when they speak of Thar. Magical sunsets, landscapes lush with greenery after monsoon rains, splashes of colorful saris against arid desert sands—it’s understandable why Thar so enraptures its visitors.

Though I’ve been to the desert on the other side of the India-Pakistan border, I’ve not (yet) visited Thar. Nevertheless, I can’t leave such a significant destination off of this list. Tharparkar district as a whole is tempting, but Nagarparkar specifically caught my eye, as it’s filled with both surreal landscapes and Jain temples.

Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to get there as an independent foreign traveler. A friend of mine was stopped by police in Mithi and forced onto a bus back to Karachi; officials said he needed an NOC to continue into Thar. This is a likely response in the region, as it’s close to the India-Pakistan border, and thus a sensitive area. Your best bet is to visit through a tour or with a local friend who can talk your way out of tight spots.

Day trips in Sindh

Some places in Sindh are more easily visited as day trips from major towns, rather than overnight stays. A lack of accommodation is a motivation at times; at others, it’s simply not worth the overnight (unless you’re a photographer addicted to golden hours like myself).

Here’s a few spots in Sindh I believe deserve a visit, if not an overnight:

Sindh travel guide - Men praying at a shrine in Hala, Pakistan - Lost With Purpose travel blog

Prayer time at the shrine in Hala

Once a hub of Sufi thought, the town of Hala is now consumed by busy bazaars and rattling Qingqis. However, if you’re headed to Bhit Shah or Sehwan Sharif , it’s worth a stop.

The Makhdoom Nooh shrine pictured is one incentive; the other is that Hala is famous for its textiles and woodwork. If you’re interested in picking up an iconic Sindhi ajrakh scarf—block printed by hand with natural dyes rather than synthetic dyes—this is a good place to do so.

Sindh travel guide - Man serving ice cream in Matiari town - Lost With Purpose travel blog

Matiari’s most famous food

Allow me a moment of gluttony. Matiari, in the same district as Hala, deserves a visit for one very specific reason: ice cream. If traveling the road between Hyderabad and Bhit Shah, you need to take 20 minutes en route to stop here.

Matiari’s ice cream is famous in the region, and damned delicious if I may say so. There are two notable ice cream places along the highway running through the town: Alfaisal Ice Cream and Matiari Ice Cream .

People like to debate which is best. Rather than fight, I suggest trying both places and coming to your own conclusions. #GluttonyVeiledAsDiplomacy

Sindh travel guide - Keenjhar lake boats - Lost With Purpose travel blog

Boats at a “resort” at Keenjhar Lake

Keenjhar Lake  

This mythical lake is about an hour’s drive from Thatta . It’s a popular picnic spot and weekend getaway for people in the region, as well as a resting place for migratory birds in winter months. Legend has it a wealthy prince fell in love with a woman from Keenjhar, and made her a queen above all other queens. As a testament to their love, the prince’s tomb is on a small island in the middle of the lake.

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Shah Zaman Baloch (@shahzamanbaloch) on Aug 29, 2014 at 1:09am PDT

I only visited the lake on a brief visit in 2016, and admittedly wasn’t impressed (to be fair, I was dying of a combination food poisoning and dehydration from summer heat). However, I’ve since seen more photos of culture and life around the lake, and would be happy to make a return visit in the future.

Sindh travel guide - Ranikot fort

Ranikot Fort

We’ve all heard of the Great Wall of China… but what about the Great Wall of Sindh?

Though it isn’t quite on the scale of the Great Wall—hyperboles are common in South Asia—its size is impressive nonetheless. The fort’s walls are approximately 32 km (20 mi) in length, and can easily take a day to explore.

The fort is best visited as a day trip from Hyderabad . It’s about 90 km away from the city.

Shrine of Sachal Sarmast

Call me a sucker for Sufism and/or all things coated in mosaics, but this small and stunning shrine in Daraza Sharif is totally worth a visit in my humble opinion. An hour from Sukkur , the Sufi shrine is a peaceful place where people come to pay their respects at the deceased poet’s tomb. If you’re lucky, there may be a little qawwali performance to watch during your visit.

Sindh travel guide - Entry walkway to Kot Diji Fort - Lost With Purpose travel blog?

A grand entrance to Kot Diji Fort

Kot Diji Fort

Best combined with a visit to the Shrine of Sachal Sarmast when day tripping from Sukkur or Larkana , Kot Diji is another spectacular fort within interior Sindh. Mostly empty during the week, visitors can freely roam around the relatively well-preserved complex. Once you’re done playing explorer within the fort’s walls, don’t miss out on the exquisite Sheesh Mahal nearby .

Although Sindh has seen a handful of terrorist attacks in the last decade, the security situation is not as bad as it may seem. Bandits are no longer common, and the likelihood of a tourist—especially a foreign one—being somewhere where they’ll be in real danger is not very high. Use common sense as you would anywhere in the world.

So what’s the issue? My favorite way to describe the security situation in Pakistan applies to Sindh equally well. Forget security problems—in Sindh, security is the problem.

As an obvious foreigner or a (unmarried) female traveler, you’re likely to have an encounter with security personnel if you go anywhere aside from Karachi or Hyderabad. The likelihood increases exponentially when visiting small towns or natural places like Thar.

Sindh travel guide - With security guard at urs of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan Sharif, Pakistan - Lost With Purpose travel blog

Sweltering in the 45°C heat with my security escort during the urs in Sehwan Sharif

Don’t get too worked up about it. They’re either curious as to why you’re traveling in places they wouldn’t expect you to go… or they think you’re a spy and want to know what you’re up to. Unless you’re actually a spy—presumably most of you aren’t—you aren’t actually doing anything wrong. The biggest issue is that police may try to move you to expensive hotels with more “security”… and a much larger price tag than many of us want to pay.

If police or agents approach you, be polite but firm. If what they’re asking you to do doesn’t make any sense, don’t hesitate to point that out. Remember that they have the power to force you to leave a place, so it’s best to compromise rather than fight them outright. Should they demand you stay in a hotel you can’t afford, tell them your budget is too small, and ask to stay in the police station or something affiliated with it overnight.

To avoid security hassle, it’s best to travel with a local friend or with a tour. Officers seem to calm down when stupid foreigners (sarcasm) are accompanied by locals. If you don’t have such connections, try to at least have the phone number of a Pakistani friend saved so you can call them if anything comes up.

Finding accommodation in Sindh

As you’ve probably figured out by now, accommodation in Sindh—especially budget-friendly or backpacker accommodation—is difficult to come by.

Many guesthouses listed in the Lonely Planet have either closed or drastically increased their prices. Pakistan Traveler , a guidebook by my friend Tim of Urban Duniya travel blog, is the only guide with relatively up-to-date accommodation options… but he couldn’t always find very budget-friendly options, either.

Backpackers on a tight budget should rely on Couchsurfing or local contacts found in groups like Female Pakistan Travelers (girls only) or See You in Pakistan for finding places to sleep. Not only will staying with a local be enlightening and save you money, it can also help you avoid having security guards forced onto you at inopportune moments.

If traveling Sindh seems a bit complicated for you—or if you just want to save yourself time and hassle—it’s a good idea to consider joining a tour or hiring a guide for your trip.

On my most recent trip to Sindh, I spent a lot of time traveling around with my friend Faran, who runs the tour agency The Eventum . Son of a renowned Sufi poet and a Sindhi through and through, Faran knows everything there is to know about the province. He is an invaluable resource to anyone looking to dig deeper into Sindh. I highly recommend getting in contact with him if you want assistance during your trip to Sindh. You can contact Faran through The Eventum’s Facebook page, or on Whatsapp at +923323347202 .

If you’re looking for a reputable travel guide to reference while traveling in Sindh, Pakistan Traveler by Tim Blight is the most comprehensive travel guide on the region. Written by a friend of mine (and coauthored by me for the latest edition!), it’s a must-have for anyone traveling Sindh… or the rest of Pakistan, for that matter.

Whatever you choose, happy travels and enjoy your Sindh adventure!

It sure is a mystery to me! I was in Pakistan a month ago and only got to see the north (amazing and look so much different than what is shown here) but never thought of going to the south until now! This looks amazing, Alex.

Good thing I made a new Pakistani friend from Karachi on my last trip, so maybe it’s a good reason to travel down there, visit her and explore the province a little bit. How’s the situation in the south by the way after the Chinese embassy incident? I heard foreigners are prohibited to go out of the hotels for a few days after it happened.

it’s crazy to learn my country from a tourist but I take it. 😉 Lot of useful information here and a travel to plan ahead !

I lived in Turkey for a year and became I fascinated with Islamic architecture and sufism. I dream of traveling in Sindh this fall. Thanks for such a well written, thoughtful post. I will check out the Eventum as I think it may be wise to go with a tour since I’ve never been to South Asia before. Thanks Alex, happy travels.

Very well written!!

Hi Alex, Thanks a lot for this precious information! I was considering traveling to Sindh in May… but after reading your blog for sure I will try to arrange it at some other season. What is the very best month to go there according to you? I wanted to contact Faran from the Eventum but the phone number is not in WhatsApp and page does not work. Are you still in contact with him? Any other number to reach him? Thanks a lot! Berry
