The town of Lakhpat in Gujarat is yet another almost-ghost-town of India which was a major city that connected Gujarat with Sindh during the reign of some ancient kingdoms and with the Sindhu river flowing through it. Over the years, there were events that included the earthquake that made Sindhu river not flow here anymore and that made the residents move. The partition had quite an effect on this town as well. If you happen to pass by this town make sure you visit here and check out the Lakhpat Fort, the Pir Ghaus Mohammad Tomb and the Lakhpat Gurudwara Sahib.
1. Lakpath fort:The route to Lakpath was amazingly spread between marshes land as far as eye travels, you can see horses and camels only in 1 hour 30 minutes of journey. we stopped at one point for pictures when we were busy in capturing the beauty around, there came the border petrol vehicle, as you know we are crazy, i asked sai to click picture with vehicle by pointing my finger, that officer was so kind and he stops vehicle and asked me, you wanna take a picture with me, i said yes. come on, everyone was curious and got into the vehicle, clicked pics and had some talk with him, wished him thanks.
"It used to be the biggest and richest settlements in all of Gujarat" he provided, still sounding hopeful. "There were more than 15,000 people residing inside the forted walls, now only 566 have left. You must visit it now that you're here. I'm sure you'll like it" Hopelessly driven by his curiosity, I decided to give Lakhpat a visit.
