Sukkur destination info
Sukkur is an other winter destination in Pakistan. as said above it is a different kind of destination. The city it self is a small but very busy Bazaar. The best thing to buy is Dates which are really a good gift from here, specially if you are going there before Ramadan. One can also hunt for colourful handicrafts and Ajraks here.

Places to Visit : Ghanta Ghar (Clock Tower) Bazaar should be your starting point where the best part of bazaar is. Later you can visit Masoom Shah Jo Munaro (Minaret of Masoom Shah) which is at a walking distance and if you have energy to climb 84 narrow steps there is a spectacular view of the River Indus and its two bridges. Minaret was built by Historian and knight Masoom Shah in 18th century. The Lloyed Barrage and Lansdowne bridge are also worrth a look. At Lloyd barrage there is also a small barrage Museum which explains the barrage system and some interesting facts of the river Indus irrigation system. Near Lansdowne Bridge there is "Sat Bahan Astan" A small graveyard from 15t to 17th century has beautifully decorated tombs with blue Glazed tiles.

You can also hire a house boat to give you a tour of floating villages of Mohanas on the banks of river Indus. Sometimes you can also get a glimpse of Indus Dolphin during this ride. Sadh Belo is a Hindu Pilgrimage area near these villages. You need a permission from the department of Oqaf to go there but there is not much of a common tourists interest.

Shrine of War Mubarak : Near Rohri Railway station towards Sukkar this Shirines holds a holy Hair Mobarak of Prophet Mohammed PBUH

At a short distance from Sukkur There are few temples of Hindus which are of the Kali Mata & Durga. It is said that Kali when traveling to Hanglag (Baluchistan ) stayed here many Hindus come for a pilgrmage (Teerat ) and go through a dark cave to perform their ritual The people here are very friendly and it can be really interesting to see how rituals are performed here. On the way to the caves you can also stop at Ganjo Takar a small temple on top of a gigantic bolder if you want to test your rock climbing skills this is perfect When I went there I saw there was no statue and on top it was written (He hane Masjid AAhe)
{This is a Mosque Now)!!!

Ruines of City of Aror which is located only 9 Kilometers from Sukkur is the site where Mohammed bin Qasim built a famous Mosque in 726 AD which lives even
today and an Imam still performs prayer there . If you are an archeologist mind you may hike to the citadel and probably can find some coins of that period. (8th to 13 Century)

Where to stay : InterPaki Inn Hotel , Hotel Faran , Forum Inn and other small Hotels near Railway station.

>>>>> Travel Tip <<<<<<<

On a visit to archeological sites best thing to carry is a hat . No mater which season you go to a hat can be very helpful against Sun.
