  • Hyderabad is the second largest city in Pakistan's Sindh province and the fourth largest in the country. It was founded in 1768 by Mian Ghulam Shah Kalhoro upon the ruins of a Mauryan fishing village along the bank of the Indus River known as Neroon Kot. Formerly the capital of Sindh, it serves as the headquarters of the district of Hyderabad. The last Battle of Amir Talpor and the British took place in the city in 1843. Before the creation of Pakistan, it was known as the Paris of India, for its roads used to be washed with river water. Hyderabad is a hot and humid city in the south of the nation and has been a staging point for literary campaigns particularly oriented towards the Sindhi language and the birthplace of a number of influential poets and Sufi dervishes. Rich with culture and tradition, the city is the largest bangle producer in the world and serves as a transit hub between rural and urban Sindh. Located 110 kilometres from important archaeological digs investigating the pre-Harappan settlement of Amri, the region holds extreme importance for archaeologists the world over. The city is also known for its medical and educational institutions.
