Brief History: Hyderabad is a Division and a District in the Sindh Province of Pakistan. Hyderabad Division is administratively divided into six Districts, namely; 
Dadu District
Hyderabad District
Jamshoro District
Matiari District
Tando Allahyar District
Tando Muhammad Khan District

Hyderabad District is administratively divided into four talukas (sub-divisions); Hyderabad City, Hyderabad Rural, Latifabad and Qasimabad. The district HQ is at Hyderabad city, the 2nd largest city in the Sindh Province after Karachi.

Mian Ghulam Shah Kalhoro of the Kalhora Dynasty founded Hyderabad city in 1768 over the ruins of Neroon Kot, a small fishing village on the banks of River Indus named after its ruler Neroon. 

Talpurs defeated the Kalhora Dynasty in the Battle of Halani in 1783 to become rulers of Sindh from 1783 to 1843. They made Hyderabad the capital of Talpur Dynasty in 1789. The British Army led by General Charles James Napier defeated Talpurs at the Battle of Miani in 1843 and Hyderabad came under their control. The British made the city part of the Bombay Presidency of British colonial empire.

After the independence of Pakistan in 1947, Hyderabad was made the capital of Sindh.  In 1955, the provinces were dissolved and the One Unit (West Pakistan) was formed and Lahore was its capital. In 1969 the One Unit was also dissolved and Karachi was made the capital of Sindh.

Hyderabad is the largest producer of bangles in the world.

    Last photo, “Hyderabad city in 1875”, kis elaqay ki hai?

    • This is a very old pic of 1875. You would observe that those we are mud houses. Those must be converted into a Housing Colony.

      Other visitors of this Post are requested to throw some light on this aspect.
