Hyderabad is the sixth largest city in Pakistan located in the Sindh province. It is the second largest city of Sindh. The city was founded in 1768 by Mian Ghulam Shah Kalhoro upon the ruins of a Mauryan fishing village along the bank of the Indus known as Neroon Kot (Sindhi: نيرُون ڪوٽ). It has often been referred to as, in the olden times, the “Paris of India” because its roads were washed daily with perfumed water.

The city was made capital of Sindh under Kalhoras. It expanded, progressed and flourished more under the later Talpur rulers. Traditionally, old city buildings are topped by ‘Manghu’ or ‘badgir’ which looks like chimneys on roof tops. They catch the cool breezes which blow steadily from south-west to north-east during the hot summer days beginning in late April. In few old sections of the town, cows still roam the streets giving it a distinctly medieval atmosphere.
