Thatta, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is located about 150 km from Karachi, Pakistan and is home to one of the oldest/largest necropolis in the world, with tombs dating back to the 14th century. A friend’s family generously took me there last Sunday and it was refreshing to soak in some history (never a favorite subject in school). On our way back, we stopped at a dig-site which goes by the name of Bhambore, home to a 2nd century BC civilization. Presented here are a few shots that I took there as well as along the way. Hope you like them!
Resting in the shade
The corridors of a mausoleum
Another view of the corridor
Engravings on a Grave
Through the looking glass
The way I was, before the sands of time passed me by
Long gone, I still linger
The snake charmer
Arching it up
Under the dome
The arabesque - the corner-stone of Islamic architecture
A 1000-year old bowl
Barbers of the past - broken scissors found at the dig-site
You take such beautiful photos, truly breathtaking
Thank you for the kind words Mary Anne (I’m assuming it’s you)! 🙂
Thank you for the appreciation Mouzma. It really means a lot.
