Kalhora Tombs, Badin

The twin tombs, located at Ketyun Jo Kot southeast of Shadi Large on the right bank of river Puran (an abandoned water course of mighty river that used to flow across), are believed to be of Kalhora period. Both tombs are built in square plan with hemispherical dome resting on the polygonal drums. The entrances of the tombs open to the east. The interior of the tombs is also square in shape. The fresco designs used in the interior have almost been faded. Each tomb contains a grave, without inscription. The tombs are surrounded with wild bushes. The negligence on the part of department concerned coupled with natural disasters have played havoc with the structures, causing irreparable loss and damage to the relics of past.
