Birth Place of Akbar, Near Umerkot Town.

Area : 81 s.ft (9x9)

The small town of Umerkot, which lies at the edge of the sand hills forming the desolate desert of eastern Sind prominently figures in the annals of history for being the birth place of the Great Mughal Shahiinsha Jalaluddin Akbar.
At the birth place of Akbar small ordinary pavilion was built in 1898 A.D. by a local Zamindar named Syed Mehar Shah. A stone slab is laid on the eastern façade of the pavilion which runs as follows:-
This monument is erected in honour of Emperor Akbar the great born here in 1542 A.D, reigned 49 years from 1556 to 1605 by Sayed Mehar Shah of Khejrari Taluka Umerkot. The memorial is a modern brick built small domed pavilion, situated on a small piece of land about 50’x50’. It actually is a shabby looking structure which is not in any way representing the great event of Akbar’s Birth.
