Chaukhandi Tombs are situated 29 kilometers east of Karachi, Sindh Province, Pakistan, on N-5 National Highway near Landhi Town. The Chaukhandi tombs are extraordinary for the sophisticated and beautiful stone carving.
This sort of celebration stop in Sindh and Baluchistan is astonishing as an outcome of its fundamental north-south presentation. The more clear up graves are manufactured with a buff-conditioned sandstone. Their cut beautification shows master craftsmanship and has frequently kept amazingly well after sometime. Tombs were made either as single graves or as get-togethers of up to eight graves, raised on a standard stage.
An ordinary sarcophagus incorporates six vertical sections, with two long protuberances on every side of the grave exhibiting the length of the body and the staying two vertical pieces on the head and foot side. These six pieces are secured by a second sarcophagus including six all the more close vertical irregularities yet littler in size, giving the grave a pyramid shape. The upper box is further secured with four or five even pieces and the most foremost change is orchestrated vertically with its northern end often cut into a handle known as a crown or a turban. The tombs are decorated with geometrical arrangements and themes, including figural representations, for occasion, mounted horsemen, seeking after scenes, arms, and precious stones.
After the Second World War the Chaukhandi tombs did not get any idea from the Pakistan powers until Dr. I. H. Qureshi, a noticeable history master and the then planning clergyman (later Chancellor of Karachi University), drew the thought about the Department of Archeology and Museums to them, having gotten a letter on the subject from Zahid Hussain, Governor of State Bank of Pakistan
