“Must visit”
Review of Makli Hill

Makli Hill
Reviewed 5 February 2014

A must visit when in this part of the world. Meant to be the largest necropolis in the world. Most fascinating is the craftsmanship in the designs of shrines. When looked into in detail, one will notice that within one structure you will not find a design pattern replicated. Watchmen do allow you to enter some of the locked shrines in exchange for a karchi (fee).

Huge area with tombs, mausoleums and astonishing views. It is guarded and relatively well preserved place. Unfortunately there is locally no signs, map or written description of particular tombs. The only source of information is local watchmen who speaks sindhi and perhaps urdu. But he is very enthusiastic and helpful if you have someone who can translate. Most of the mausoleums are locked and opening means necessity to some financial arrangement with watchmen. :-)The mausoleums are worth to visit inside because of beautifull carvings and mosaics. Additional local attractions is shrine of Hazrat Abdullah Shah Ashabi at Makli -saint during Sama dynasty came to Sidh in 10th century from Baghdad. According to local tradition there is 125 000 of sufi scholar, saints and pilgrims buried around. Near shrine you should see the local restaurant (but dont eat there).

The tomb site starts just besides the main national highway, the highway from karachi to thatta is very much smooth, and its at times single track and other times double road. You wont get good market around the tomb sirte, so do bring ur drinking water in plenty, and in ice box if its summer time. There is mere 10 rupee ticket to enter the site with car, adn u can park it anywhere. a very awesome view of a rainwater pond is rite besides the toimb site. its a big site and you better take the roads in car to move from bigger tombs to other bigger tombs. at some tombs, the guards will ask for 50 rupee ticket inspite of the written board for the ticket cost of 20 rupee. But u can bargain as well. If you are goin to see only the tombs then juzt extend your plan for the keenjhar lake as well as its nearby.
