Message from the Honourable Minsiter

Welcome to our website!

Dear visitors!


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

My own heart beats 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 in dormant since its establishment. For the first time a full time Director General assumed the 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 since 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 joint archeological venture at Bhanbhore site has been formalized with the Italian archeological mission. Restoration work at Kotdiji fort and at Ranikot fort are set to be started in coming days.

Beside all 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 hidtory.
