Tourist Destination Type

The Kot Diji Fort can be found upon a hill in Kot Diji, Sindh, and though it ain’t that old- what’s underneath it sure is! The fort was built between 1785-1795 by Mir Sohrab Khan Talpur, but it actually lies above the remains of a pre-historic civilization by the same name.

It’s believed that the remains date back as far as 3300 BCE, placing it before the Indus Valley/ Harappan Civilization. Yes- it’s real old!

Unlike some of the other forts mentioned on this list, Kot Diji is a bit more offbeat and as such attracts fewer tourists! Both the fort and the remains can be found about 24 km south of the city of Khairpur.
