Sindh

Sindh is most important province of Pakistan, because of Karachi port, the economic hub. It was first settled about 2 million years ago by the Riwat people, and the fertile land around the Indus River led to the development of the Indus Valley Civilization, and the advanced cities of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro between 3300-1300 BCE.

The Indus Valley Civilization is the farthest known outpost of archaeology in prehistoric times, around 3000 BCE. The Indus Valley Civilization rivaled the contemporary civilizations of Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia in size and scope, numbering nearly half a million inhabitants at its height with well-planned grid cities and sewer systems.

Sindh is also said to be "Bab-e-Islam" (door to Islam). In 711 AD, Muhammad bin Qasim conquered the Sindh and Indus Valley, bringing South Asian societies into contact with Islam

Sindh has numerous tourist sites. Modern tourist sites include certain recent resorts, amusement parks, water parks and golf clubs. The most commonly known are Arena, Aladdin Amusement Park, Go-Aish and Sindbad.

Historical tourist sites include the ruins of Mohenjo-daro near the city of Larkana, Runi Kot, Jamshoro, Kot Deji, the Jain temples of Nangar Parker and the historic temple of Sadhu Bela, Sukkur. Islamic architecture is quite prominent in the province; its numerous mausoleums include the ancient Shahbaz Qalander mausoleum.
