10 Historical Places in Jamshoro Sindh - Tanveer Rajput TV


Jamshoro is located on the Indus River's right bank. The population of Jamshoro is 1 Million and it is approximately 18 km from Hyderabad. Jamshoro is an ancient cultural city of Sindh, where three universities are situated at the same time, MUET for engineering, LUMHS for Medical, and Sindh University for general sciences. Jamshoro is famous for its Universities and a Cadet College. Moreover, Jamshoro is also popular for Phala Fish. Furthermore, there is also one Cadet College in Petaro. These institutions have made Jamshoro an educational hub. In this blog, I will tell you about 10 tourist places to visit in Jamshoro.

1. Kirthar National Park

This Park lies in the Jamshoro. It was established in 1974 and is Pakistan's third-largest national park, covering 3,087 square kilometres of land. Leopards, wolves, and wild goats are among the animals that inhabit the area. The Kirthar Park boundary also includes Ranikot Fort. 

Tourists can stay in two rest homes run by the Sindh Wildlife Department. You can camp in the park if you like, but you must bring your tent with you. There are no admission costs, however, if you are not on a guided tour, you should get a no-objection letter from the Wildlife Department. The Wildlife Department offices in Hyderabad and Karachi accept NOC applications and might issue them the same day or the next day.

2. Manchar Lake

Pakistan's largest freshwater lake is Lake Manchar. It lies 18 kilometres west of Sehwan Sharif, on the west bank of the Indus River. The lake gathers water from several little streams in the Kirthar Mountains before emptying into the Indus River. The size of the lake changes with the seasons, ranging from 350 km to 520 km.

3. The Fort of Ranikot (Great Wall of Sindh)

This is the world's largest fort, measuring 35 kilometres in diameter. The Pakistan National Commission proposed the site for UNESCO world heritage designation in 1993, and it has been on the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites since then.

4. Sindhology Museum

The Sindhology Museum is located near the University of Sindh Jamshoro's main entrance. It was the first research institution of its type and was established in 1962 as one of the most important resources in Sindh's history. Sindhology is a term that refers to the study of Sindh. It also has a musical archive and a painting gallery. The museum can be visited any day from 9 AM to 5 PM.

5. Kotri Barrage

Kotri Barrage is located on the Indus River that was built in 1932. The Kotri Barrage is used to manage water flow in the Indus River for agriculture and flood control. Besides this barrage, there is a restaurant named "Al-Manzar Restaurant". Their fish is very famous. People called that fish "Phala machli." That's why hundreds of people visit this barrage daily.

6. Darawat Dam

It is a concrete gravity dam that spans the Nai Baran River near the Jamshoro village of Jhangri. Darawat dam construction began in 2010, and it was completed in 2013 and was inaugurated by Pakistan's former President Asif Ali Zardari. The dam is 250m in length and 43 m in height, and it can hold 150 million cubic metres of water, enough to irrigate 25,000 acres of land.

7. Sehwan Fort

Sehwan Fort, also known as Alexander's Fort, is supposed to have been constructed by Alexander the Great. The defensive walls are roughly rectangular. Modern structures developed by the Sindh government may be found on top of the fortified ground area.

8. Lal Shahbaz Qalandar Shrine 

Sehwan is famous for the Lal Shahbaz qalandar shrine. The shrine is one of Pakistan's most important, with up to one million visits each year. Shah Tughluq ordered that the saint's relics be housed at Sehwan Sharif, and the building of the shrine began under his reign. In 1356 C.E., the tomb complex was completed.

9. Kai Valley

The distance between Sehwan Sharif and Kai Valley is 40 kilometres. Due to evident indications of water erosion, the Kai valley provides picturesque vistas on both sides of the road, and it seems as though the hills were previously below sea level. The ruins of ancient hamlets and fragments of terracotta pottery from the old Indus Valley Civilization, as well as Stone Age caves, have been discovered at the summit of the hill, which is encircled by an ancient compound wall of stones.

10. Shrine of Laki Shah Saddar

On the Jamshoro-Dadu national highway, south of Sehwan lies Saint Shah Sadaruddin Lakyari's shrine. It's also known for its sulphur springs, which are used to treat skin ailments. On the bank of Lakki Shah Sadar's springs, there was formerly a Hindu Shiva Temple, but today there's a Muslim shrine. A little town called "Lakki" is located eleven miles south of Sehwan, and hot water springs run from the mountains approximately two miles from this settlement.
