Then we left for Lakhpat Fort. There is a small Gurudwara where you can have "Prasada" obviously for free. The fort is almost abandoned with dilapidated buildings, but it give good views and is a picturesque place.
Next Stop was Lakhpat fort; Lakhpat apparently a ghost town, was a major port town in the 1800s. After many wars and natural calamities, Lakhpat nearly ceased to exist and dangerously remains so. Although it has only a few hundred inhabitants; it plays an important role when it comes to border security. The Border Security Force(BSF) continuously patrols these areas and makes sure our borders are safe. Don't forget to visit the Tomb of Pir Ghaus Muhammad, a Sufi saint who was believed to posses supernatural powers. Also nearby is the Lakhpat Gurudwara Sahib, it is believed that Guru Nanak stayed over here on his way to Mecca.But what i loved the most about this place was the view it offered from the fort walls. The pictures don't do justice to the beauty which was in front of us. It needs to be seen to be believed. :)
Koteshwar, Narayan Sarovar, Lakhpat and Fossil Park are towards the extreme west. The temple on the sea in Koteshwar and the nearby lake have many a legend associated with it. Koteshwar will remind you of Kanyakumari in the extreme south of India though a little less crowded and with heavy Naval forces presence. The Fossil Park closer to Bhuj in Nakhatrana is quite a treat to know about the fossil rich area of Kutch.
people who were lakshpathis used to stay there by making trade of gold and rice part of sindh center. that's why this places called lakpath, now its called ghost town.Every one has been to kalo Dungar but most of them were didn't know about Magnetic-hill....
