Overall Guide : There are uncountable places in this city which are worth a view at least once. Most of these places are shrines or tombs of some great saints, prophets, poets and other personalities. A beautiful temple is constructed on the river... more Indus and is popular by the name of Sadh Belo which is a beautiful temple and the view is a sight to behold. Then there is Aror, which are the ruins of an ancient city. The visit to this place can be very knowledgeable. There are shrines and tombs of people like SYED SADAR-UR-DIN SHAH, Shah Khairuddin Jillani and many others which are highly respected and worshipped. Another place to visit is the Bukkur Island which gives a peaceful view of the water and its banks etc. As the culture of this great city goes back to several centuries, this city just cannot go without shopping places or markets, so a must visit is the Shahi Bazaar on Frere Road where you might get just anything that you can dream about in Pakistan.

Sukkur has been an important strategic center and trading route from time... more immemorial. The Sukkur Barrage has 66 Gates. The Sukkur Barrage (formally called Lloyd Barrage), built under the British Raj on the Indus River, controls one of the largest irrigation systems in the world.
