Dharan Tirtha Hindu temples

Laki was once rich and famous for its historical sites, Hindu temples and shrines of saints like Dharan Pir but after the partition of India in 1947 and creation of Pakistan, the succeeding governments didn't pay any significant attention to the conservation of the site and the site has been ruined, according to media reports.

A Chinese Buddhist Scholar and traveller Xuanzang alias Hiuen Tsang visited Sindh in the seventh century and described that there were 273 Hindu temples here, out of which 235 belonged to Pashupata Shivaites, which is another order of Shivaism. In his magnum opus, "Sindh Revisited", 19th century British scholar and traveller Sir Richard Francis Burton describes Laki as a place of pilgrimage for Hindus. The devotees called the streams dharan tirtha, which means “constant flow of the earth in a holy place.” French researcher Michel Boivin, in his book "Sindh Through History and Representations", notes that Laki “is one of the most important places of the Shivaite cult in Sindh and a stopover for pilgrims going on the journey to Hinglaj Mata temple to celebrate yatra [pilgrimage] in Balochistan.”[3]
