Welcome to our website!

Dear visitors!


Welcome to the website of the Antiquities Department, Government of Sindh. Archaeology and antiquities; where we can look at our past, our heritage, and the status of our greatest civilization.

My own heartbeats with the archeology and tourism of Sindh. In Antiquities, I initiated the task to promote the Archeological and Cultural Heritage within and outside the country by revitalizing the Directorate of Antiquities, which was dormant since its establishment. For the first time, a full-time Director-General assumed charge of this important organ, and the directorate showed their performance in holding of three-days International Conference on Mohen jo Daro, conservation at Makli as per UNESCO guidelines. The Umerkot fort which was neglected for a long and was in complete ruins has been brought back into its past grandeur after the restoration of its majestic walls. The Department in collaboration with the French Archeological Mission carried out Archeological excavations at Chahun jo Daro, a pre-historic site in Sakrand. The excavation at Lakhian jo Daro is in progress in collaboration with the Shah Abdul Latif University Khairpur, whereas a joint archeological venture at the Bhanbhore site has been formalized with the Italian archeological mission. Restoration work at Kotdiji fort and at Ranikot fort is set to be started in the coming days.

Besides all the above concrete tasks, it was very much necessary to bring all information regarding activities and comprehensive data of our archaeological sites to all of you, no matter where you live, on which time you can spare for us; our responsive website will say you welcome and present you all information that you need. I am hoping that you will enjoy our website and wonder to see our glorious history.

Amar Fayaz Buriro (Consultant)

Amar Fayaz Buriro is a Language Engineer, Linguist & Consultant Director in the Department of Culture, Tourism & Antiquities, Government of Sindh. Previously he has worked as IT Specialist in Sindhi Language Authority where he looked after the Sindhi Computing and development of Sindhi Codex for advanced computing in language engineering, this will preserve our historical languages in advanced systems.

Besides this Amar is local guide of Google Inc. for Sindh Cultural heritage and tourism promotion in geo-tagging, making 360 Virtual Reality Tours and dissemination of information focused on cultural sites.  

Earlier he was Head of Department Information Technology in Newports Institute of Communication & Economics a corporate university of Karachi, IT Consultant in Geo TV network, and CEO/Owner of spread Multiplication, a firm providing web development services using latest cutting edge web-related technology and tools. He has endeavored to bring this latest technology to the service of major Pakistani languages such as Urdu & Sindhi. He realized that these languages of our country faced formidable challenges due to non-compatibility with browsers designed especially for the handheld devices such as tablets and cellphones. One of the major issues so far as Urdu was concerned was the use of the traditionally preferred Nastaleeq style on the web. Finally, he was able to create the first Web-based Nastaleeq font “Amar Nastaleeq”, which is a lightweight font that allows robust and reliable conversion to various embeddable formats for use across major OS’s, browsers, and devices. Meanwhile, he also worked at localizing the world’s leading CMS Joomla for Urdu and Sindhi. Today he is the webmaster of more than 85 multilingual websites which use advanced PHP programming. He also found that the majority of the programmers and web developers in our country use nulled versions, cracked software, and pirated scripts. This unfortunately is the major cause why most of the websites get hacked and the database management has security issues. Deviating from this practice, he chose to use neat and clean programming and licensed scripts. 

Prior to setting up spread, he was associated with National Rural Support Program (NRSP) first as District Manager and later as Project Manager in Education Project assigned by Union Council Based Poverty Reduction Program. The project is considered to be one of the most acclaimed and widely mobilizing models of UCBPRP initiatives of community-based girls’ literacy and volunteers’ engagement for the furtherance of female education.

He is the compiler of Pakistan’s biggest English to English to Sindhi Dictionary at the time in 1997, which has introduced him as a language expert. His literary work on cultural, social, and philosophical is recognized even from BBC Urdu, where he had written more than 150 blogs and articles on socio-political issues. He is liberal and always trying to spreading peace, love, and harmony within all races and nations on this planet.

Being a creative idealist and ideologist, he has always welcomed challenges, built up his reputation as a troubleshooter, and aimed for excellence.
