UBHAN SHAH SHRINE: ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE DARGAH IN SINDH

The Ubhan Shah Shrine is located on the highest peaks of the Rohri hills passing through the District Khairpur, Sindh Province. The mausoleum of Syed Ubhan Shah houses 3 graves involving 2 of his nephews. This Dargah is being looked after by the kandhro Faqeers, who live in the surrounding village.
However, there are no self-assured details about the Ubhan Shah, a popular story says that Ubhan Shah once fell in love with a non-Muslim female living in Kot Diji. He was chased by the heirs of the non-Muslim lady. After reaching this hilltop, he prayed to the Allah to save and protect him from the attackers. His prayer was heard and the earth beneath his feet opened up to a hole where Ubhan Shah lowered himself in the upright position. The term “Ubhan” has been derived from the Sindhi word “Ubho” which commonly means straight or upright.
Under the Ubhan Shah Shrine hill, there is also a very big old and new graveyard, and a tomb of Bahawal Shah. The bazaar leading to the tomb is made on a slope, which offers it an even more exotic feel.
