Hyderabad's eighteenth-century fort was first the court of the Kalhora dynasty and then that of the Talpur Amirs. According to contemporary British descriptions it must have been splendid, but apart from the tower, main entrance, and a room in the harem, little remains to be seen. Portraits of the Amirs and their weapons are exhibited in what passes as the Fort Museum near the railway station. Their stove-pipe hats are on display in Hyderabad's Sindh Provincial Museum, near the Polytechnic College and opposite the Sui Southern Gas Office.you may also contact Archaeology Department, Pacca Qilla for information about this magnificent fort.
