Tomb of Bibi Jawindi

The historic city of Uch Saharif was founded in 325 BC by Alexander the Great under the name of Oxydracae.

Here are the mausoleums of Bibi Jawindi (1494 AD), Baha'al-Halim and Ustead, which are considered masterpieces of Islamic architecture.

In 1817 the three buildings were severely damaged by a flood and almost half of them were washed away. Today they are still considered to be in acute danger of collapse, although they have been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2004.

Above the three mausoleums is the mosque and mausoleum of Syed Jalaluddin Bukhari and his family.
