ROHRI

 

Rohri is situated on the rock of the western bank of the river Sindh. It is a very old Settlement. One can find many relics of the past here. There was no significant settlements here, when Arabs attacked Sindh. The river never passed by Rohari and Sukhar. When the river changed its course, both Rohri and Sakhar were built on the right and left banks of the river. Bakhar was fortificated. Then Bakhar Sadaat settled here in the period of Arghones. There are still monuments of Islamic period, Thornton guessed that up to the year 1846 A.D. there were about forty mosques in use, while another eighty were desolate. There is yet another settlement of Rizvi Syeds in the fortified shape at a small distance from the railway station. In the near vicinity of this area is a mosque, almost in ruins, named Mir Yaqoob Ali Shah’s mosque. One can still see quite a few tiles left on it. The Sakhar Gazzettier (local publication) shows its foundation time to be 1677 A.D. There is the drained tomb of Syed Sultan Rizivi next to the colony. On the gates of the tomb the remains of glazed work can be found. This little- damaged mosque is situated on the bank of the river and is made up of mortar work. An inscription on the mosque indicates that it was build in the reign of Shah Orangzeb (1092-1681 A.D.).

On the river bank there is a strong building, the inscription on it shows it to be completed by a person named Habib, the founder of the mosque was Fatih Khan. Adjoining the Jamia mosque is the building which have Mooyeh Mubarik. This Mooyeh Mubarik was brought to Sindh by .4bdul Baqir Khatan Sheikh Nizami-ud-din Siddique and he became a resident of Rohri. The mosque in Dhak Bazar is also famous. In this mosque there is an inscription with the date 1106 Hijira written there.

There is the graveyard of Mr. Ab-u1-Qasim relatives on a rock opposite to Fort Bhakar on the river bank in Robri . There are many graves of Mr. Ab-ul-Qasim’s relatives. The embankment of is made up of stones. To reach the graves, stairs are made on the opposite south way. A door and an enterance is built between the stairs in the south, which is carved. Most of the inscriptions bear sophisticated stone-cut writings. Safa-i-Safa was built by Mr. Abdul-ul-Qasim himself. He also chose the name for this beautiful place. Most of the graves here are made of yellow stone, which have been used on the grave of Koh-i- Makli also. The two inscriptions on Abul-Qasim’s grave are sophisticated and are written in persian.

Alor is five kilometers in Southern East of Rohan. In the period of Mohammad Bin Qasim it was the capital of Sindh. This colony became desolate after two centuries. It is said that its destruction was due to the change of the course of the river which resulted in people setteling in Rohari. The forts proved their existence in the time of Moghuls.

Adjoining the colony there is a mosque, remaining from the king Aurang Zeb era. It is now desolate and unusable. In Anoor (he grave of Syed Shakar Gang and Syed Khatazl-ul-din are also remaining. It is believed that he was close to Shahbaz Qalander who is burned in Shrine. In short Rohri reflects the stories of past and the monument front the past indicate its glorious future.
