    Default Trip to Haleji Lake - Chaukhandi Tombs-By oodbalow

    Today Libra was in my area, around 12 noon, he called me n after some chit chat he said lets go for a ride.i said "Labbaik" on his call. so we moved towards superhighway for a good lunch. after crossing Sohrab Goth program changed n we decided to go to Haleji Lake. it was not a pre planned trip. we went there to see some crocodiles but unfortunately we didn't find any crocodile in water except two of us on land.
    after Haleji Lake on our way back we had our lunch at Gharo, thanx to Baray Bhaiyya n then we went to see Historical Chaukhandi Tombs.



    Haleji Lake
    Originally Haleji Lake was a very small lake. During World War II the then British Government of Sind decided to increase the capacity of this lake by having a feeder canal from River Sindh. This lake supplies water to Karachi. During War time thousands of American and British Troops were stationed in Karachi. The lake work was taken on War Footing and was completed within 24 months. It is a huge lake-perhaps 2Kmx2Kmsx0.25Km.

    Chaukhandi Tombs
    The Chaukhandi graveyard spreads over an area of two square miles and contains tombs of certain warriors of Baloch families settled in this area some time during the 17th and 18th centuries A.D. Owing to the scarcity of dated inscriptions on Chaukhandi tombs, it its difficult to assign exact dates to them. 5i.le tombs are built on raised platforms in a pyramids form with decorative stone slabs covered in relief with human and figurative designs. Most of the tombs represent family graveyards and only a few are placed under pillar canopies finished in Hindu style. The carvings on some of the male graves show a horseman with his arms; shield, sword, bow and arrow. The carvings on women’s graves represent ornaments such as bracelets, necklaces, rings, anklets, etc. Also in case of male graves, a boss shaped projection provided at the northern end intends to hold the turban of the deceased.

    these r the tombs of certain warriors of Baloch families settled in this area some time during the 17th and 18th centuries A.D.

    as i am not that old so don't know them byname

    The carvings on some of the male graves show a horseman with his arms; shield, sword, bow and arrow.
    The carvings on women’s graves represent ornaments such as bracelets, necklaces, rings, anklets, etc.

    Hanif Bhai, I browsed this post 2+ years ago and after that, did one day trip to Haleji with family. That time I didn't know you were "The Baray Bhaiyya".
