Places: Mahram - A dead city

Mahram is a place you might pass un-noticed while travelling from Bhag to Chilgiri, an ancient 4500 years old settlement deep inside Baluchistan. But I stopped there to investigate.


It is said that Mahram remained full of life for 200 odd years and then vanished, leaving behind these ruins of pots, masjids, and lot of broken drawing rooms. And peeling plaster. Water is regarded as a real culprit. And without water life cannot continue, people cannot live, and cities cannot run. So is the case with Mahram.
