Golden History of Sukkur has
place of pride in history of civilization. The archeological site of
lakhyon-Jo-dero in its outskirts shows that the city and its suburbs were
populated in the time of Mohan-Jo-Dero Metropolitan, Three hundred and
seventy five years before the birth of Jesus Christ, Alexander the great
passed by the ramparts of the city.
During Arabs era the Arore, was the capital of ancient of ancient Sind
lying at the distance of only five kilo meters. It was in 1712 then Sukkur
along with the rest of Sindh remained the part of Islamic empire, the
trade caravans rested here while traveling to the khurassan through Bolan
Pass lying at the distance of about two hundred kilo meters from here.
Then city saw the cosmopolitan rule of Soomra Dynasty fallowed by the
orthodox soomra and the arhgun rulers. In the later days of Khurassani
rules it remained the center of Kalhora Mystico-Political movement whose
founder father lies in eternal rest on a hill named after himself that is
Adam Shah Ji Takree. It is also resting place of the courtier and diplomat
of Akber the great, known in history as Masoom Shah, the uider of the
solde Minaret in Sindh. In talpur days, it was the garrison city during
British Rule; it again became a garrison city in 1890 in the face of
advancing czarist Russia.
At the birth of our country , this city took the place of Shikarpur with
all its celebrated status in commerce and trade. Sukkur city has retained
that position till to day thanks to its geographical positions, linking
lower Punjab and southern Balochistan.
To day it is the medium sized city with a population of about million,
sending its children to about twenty five high schools and at least on
dozen colleges. With such a proud history and a large number of growing
youth, city rightly deserved a Medical college to take care of the
