TOMB OF SEVEN MAIDENS
Engraving published in The Graphic 9 November 1878

Overlooking the Indus at Sukkur lies a group of tombs datable to the first half of the 17th century. On the southern side of the escarpment is a suite of rooms which have been associated with seven virgin sisters (sat bhain) who vowed never to correctly known as the Than Kasim Shah, after Mir Kasam Shah Sabzwari who was regarded as having been buried there in 1608.
From certain points the hill is very picturesque, and forms a favorite subject for amateur sketchers
