Uch sharif : Bibi Jiwandi and other half tombs

The main tombs of Uch (bibi jiwindi, bahawal haleem and some one other), destroyed by flood. The city hosts 0.35 million shrines, according to myth

Gone with the wind!

For details and more pics, see my set Uch Sharif

These shrines were damaged in an 1817 Flood in chenab river (Uch is situated near Head Panjnad). Though the restoration techniques arent sophisticated in Pakistan, let me say that i have seen the huge amount of effort done here by Government ( and i was a bit surprised and happy)...Uch is unlike anyother city, its different!
