TOMB AND SPRINGS OF LAKKI SHAH SADAR: THE MUST-VISIT PLACE FOR TOURISTS IN SINDH

The shrine of Saint Shah Sadaruddin Lakyari (Lakki Shah Sadar) is situated on the JamshoroDadu national highway, south of Sehwan city. The place is also popular for sulphur springs for curing skin ailments and infections. This was originally the location of a Hindu Shiva Temple on the bank of springs of Lakki Shah Sadar, but there is also a Muslim tomb here now.

About 11 miles to the south of Sehwan is a small village of “Lakki” and about 2 miles from this village there are hot water springs which flow from the mountains. Since the flow of water was continuous it was also termed as “Dhara Tirath.” The springs bubble out at the base of an extreme wall of rock, with a sponge-like texture and swirling lines that rears straight up behind the Hindu temple. The nearby cave where Lakki Shah Sadar meditated is now a Muslim mausoleum.

There were 2 dharamshalas near the station and the springs, where travelers and sufferers stay. The steaming hot water flows from the mountains and at the foot of the mountains there flows a cool water fountain. There are 3 springs of hot water: 1 steaming hot, another tolerably hot and the third lukewarm. There are specific bathing arrangements for ladies. There is so much sulphur in the water that people suffering from skin ailments are cured by bathing in it just once.

The Lakki hills are a range in Sindh province to the south of the Manchar Lake. The range is over 50 miles long, linked with the Kirthar Mountains and running east towards Sehwan where they terminate on the west bank of the Indus. The largest hills are between the 1,500 feet and 2,000 feet. The hills are of recent volcanic origin as indicated by frequent hot springs and sulphuric exhalations.
