Central capital of the Kalhoro and Talpur Amirates of Sindh in the 18th and 19th centuries, built along the mighty Indus river. The city underwent a makeover in the first half of the 20th century, inspired by colonial French and British architecture, and, unfortunately, another in the late 20th century of haphazardly constructed concrete plazas. Famous for biryani, the cakes of Bombay Bakery, ethnic flare-ups, friendly shopkeepers, and the longest bazaar in Pakistan.
