PACCA QILLA
SINDH/SINDHOLOGY MUSEUM

Hyderabad has two forts (Qilas).Pacca Qila is made of baked bricks and so is known as "Pacca Qila".while the other being made with un-baked bricks is commonly known as "Kacha Qila".Hyderabad Fort is built by Ghulam Shah Kalhora.Nearby is the Shah Makkai Fort,built to protect the mausoleum of Sheikh Makkai.Although the fort is in ruins devotess from all over Sindh visit the shrine.
Also worth a visit is the Institute of Sindhhology's museum at the University of Sindh. It has displays on all aspects of Sindhi history, music and culture depicting the lifestyles of the desert tribes. Infrequent buses go to the campus, otherwise take a miniwagon to Jumshoro, across the river from Hyderabad.The Battlefield at Miani is about ten kilometers (six miles) north of Hyderabad and some five kilometers (three miles) off the National Highway.The memorial is down a dusty narrow track in the forest and you'll need a local guide to find it. 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.
