Lakhpat 1/undefined by Tripoto

Lakhpat

A ruined city, which was once a princely state is a travellers delight. It is very close to the Great Rann of Kutch and the clear starry skies are best enjoyed when you are here. This is also a seat for worship for Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims. This is where Huru Nanak is said to have halted on his way to Mecca and there is built a gurudwara, which is also said to have preserved a number of Nanak's belongings. The bodies of Sufi saints Pir Ghaus Mohammad and Syed Pir Shah are also buried here and beautiful mosques are built here.

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.

"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.
