Lakhpat
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. :)

About 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.
