Sindh Tourism:
The known oldest civilization in the world was of Mohen-jo-daro about 600 kms away from Karachi in Larkano district in Sindh (Pakistan) whereas the largest man-made irrigation system in Asia, is constructed in the year 1932, in Sukkur which is the third largest city of Sindh.

The lands of Sindh are irrigated by the water of River Indus - locally known as SINDHU, which is the 18th longest river through out the world. Its total length is about 2,925 Kms.

Sindh-Motherland

Sindhi language is one of the oldest languages of the world. It is
understood the people of
Mohen-jo-daro were speaking Sindhi language about 5,000 years ago. Presently, Sindhi is the
provincial language of Sindh and spoken in many countries of the world including Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Spain, UK, USA & also some countries in Africa & Middle East. It is interesting
to note that Sindhi is one  of the national languages of India.


Sindh has remained an independent country for the last many centuries. In the year 1843, the
British occupied the Sindh after a brief war. In August, 1947, when India was bifurcated i.e.
India & Pakistan, Sindh became province of Pakistan.

The national poet of Sindhi language is Shah Abdul Lateef Bhittai and his poetry is compiled in a
book entitled "SHAH-JO-RISALO". Its first edition published from Germany in the year 1867. Translation of SHAH-JO-RISALO has been made into many languages including English, & Urdu.
The Holy Quran was first translated from Arabic into Sindhi language by Abul Hassan - a Sindhi,
in the year 1700 AD.

 
 

Karachi [Capital of Sindh]:
The capital of Sindh province of Pakistan, is Karachi which is the largest and the most
populous city and presents an interesting and colourful combination of the old & new. The
narrow twisting lanes and alleys of the old city throb with life alongside the wide metalled roads
and elegant modern buildings. Within the city, talented artisans with age-old skills produce handicrafts of exquisite beauty.

Karachi offers a variety of pleasant attractions: wide sunny beaches, deep-sea, fishing, yachting,
golf and horse racing all-year round. Its restaurants provide a wide choice of Pakistani and
Western cuisine. Its markets and bazaars offer and endless variety of existing shopping including indigenous handicrafts, rugs and carpets rare design and beauty.

Karachi's recorded history goes back to the 18th century when it was a small fishing village
known as 'Kolachi'. With the development of its harbour, it gradually grew into a large city and important centre of trade and industry. Its selection as capital of Pakistan in 1947 added to its importance and tremendously boosted the rate of its growth and development. Although the seat
of Government has now been shifted to Islamabad, Karachi still remains the epicenter of
commerce and industry.  

Sindhi Association of North America (SANA) in its 23rd. Annual Convention held at Orlando,
Florida, USA (July 2007) has demanded renaming Karachi as Kolachi which was its old name.
