Unfortunately, there is largest railway station and airport of the Pakistan in the city and also have road links with Hyderabad, Nawabshah, Mirpur Khas and other major cities of Sindh.
Sanghar has a unique place in history of Pakistan, as it was the Head Quarter of Militant freedom fighters called "HURS". Hur movement started during second world war when British raj was busy in fight against German Nazis and Japan at variopus fronts.
Sanghar is unique in its kind; it is probably the most variable in terms of ethnic community of all the cities of Sindh.

The town of Sanghar, the district headquarters, was formerly a small village that has been populated since the 18th century. It was named after a pious fisher-woman, Mai Singhar; for more than a century, it remained a small village with a population of few hundreds.
After the 1853 invasion by Charles Napier, Sindh was divided into provinces and was assigned Zamindars, also known as "Wadera", to collect taxes for the British. Sindh was later made part of British India's Bombay Presidency, and became a separate province in 1935. During this period Sanghar obtained the status of Taluka, an administrative subdivision, and was alternatively included in districts of Nawabshah and Tharparkar. In 1954 it was given the status of District-Headquarters.
The people of the District, specifically the Hurs, played a vital role in independence of Pakistan. The Hurs were an organised military rebel group led by Pir Syed Sabghatullah Shah Pagaro Shaheed, popularly known as Pir Pagara, that sought independence from the British Raj (Colonist). They fought a Guerrilla Warfare against the British military, and were always a thorn in the side of British Raj. It has been said that this warfare was one of the major nail in the coffin of British Raj in India.
