A traditional place of burial for Sindh notables. The memorials are in some cases, on a grand scale. The finest date from just before and during the Mughal period. The largest is the size of a small palace. Best seen just before sunset.

As happens with almost all of such places in Pakistan, the potential of turning to a great tourist attraction is there, but due to hapless attitude of the govt and concerned authorities, there are no services available and tourist face many difficulties.
