Karachi Off The Beaten Path: 54 reviews and 148 photos

  Graveyard at Bhitai Tomb
by Faiza-Ifrah

At about 98 kms (57 miles) from Karachi, begins the small town of Thatta with its distinct Makli Hills graveyard declared as a World Heritage site.

This is the world's biggest Necropolis with an estimated 500,000 dead people populating the graves. Some documentries have reported about 1 million graves. This is lot of dead people. One would shiver with fright if Michael Jackson's Thriller were to become real here :-)

I will soon upload a picture of the graveyard.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
