Feeding these reptiles in the crocodile pond. Sights of Manghopir

Manghopir is a rural area of Karachi, named after Sufi Pir Haji Syed Sakhi Sultan. The area has the oldest Sufi shrines in the city, hot sulphur springs that are believed to have curative powers, and many crocodiles - believed locally to be the sacred disciples of Pir Mangho. Balochs often call this place as ‘Mangi’ or Garm-aab / Sard-aab (due to the presence of the hot & cold springs).

 

The Manghopir Lake is situated near the shrine of Sufi Pir Mangho and there over hundred Mugger crocodiles in the lake which are fed by the pilgrims.
