Sukkur

Sukkur (Sindhi: سکر‎; Urdu: سکھر‎) is a town in the Pakistani province of Sindh, located on the western bank of the Indus River. It is the 12th most populous city of Pakistan,[1] and the third largest city in Sindh province. The city was founded during British colonial rule at the head-works of the large Sukkur Barrage - used for controlling water flow through vast irrigation works in upper Sindh. Sukkur is located across from the important Hindu pilgrimage centre on Sadh Belo island, and is near the historic town of Rohri - located on the opposite bank of the Indus River.
