Sukkur, the 14th largest city of Pakistan and 3rd largest city of Sindh Province, may not strike you as a place worth visiting when you first hear of it. It is a city we often pass by when going to other areas like Lahore. This is a place we choose to stop by for the night and for refreshments, and usually not for sightseeing. If this is true, you have no idea what you are missing. Going over these pictures, you will definitely want to visit Sukkur now and get amazed by these beautiful sights and experiences.

The magnificent Sukkur barrage - Sukkur Barrage is nothing short of an engineering marvel. The 5000 ft. barrage was completed in 1932 and irrigates more than 10 million acres of lands with seven canals that crop out of it.

The lovely and enchanting Tomb of Seven Sisters - Known as Sateen jo Astaan in the local language, this tomb, located on the left bank of the River Indus on a small hill, is known to be the refuge of seven unmarried female friends who were held captive by a Raja who wanted to abduct them. But they prayed to Lord and before anything could happen to them, the earth engulfed them. Before you ask why didn’t the Earth engulf the Raja, let me tell you that this story is just folklore and is not plausible at all. But the tomb ACTUALLY houses seven beautifully engraved graves, which are only permitted for females to visit. This place is very popular with females as they think visiting this place and praying here can cure their sufferings.

The awe-inspiring Masoom Shah Jo Minaro - No, this is not Istanbul, this is Sukkur! Located in the center of the city, the shrine overlooks the entire city. The Minaret was commissioned by Masoom Shah who was the governor of Sindh appointed by Mughal Emperor Akbar. However, Masoom Shah died before it was completed and was buried in its shadow.

The stunning Lansdowne Bridge you will definitely love to cross - Yes, this is Sukkar! Lansdowne Bridge was constructed in 1889 by Lord Landsowne, the then Viceroy of India. Legend holds that British engineers weren’t very sure of the stability of this bridge so the first train that crossed it was full of prisoners who were waiting for their capital the punishment. The train crossed the bridge successfully and the prisoners were let free from their punishment.
