Golden History of Sukkur has place of pride in history of civilizations. The archeological site of lakhyon-Jo-Dero in its outskirts shows that the city and its suburbs were populated in the time of Mohan-Jo-Daro Metropolitan, Three hundred and seventy five years before the birth of Jesus Christ, Alexander the great passed by the ramparts of the city.
During Arabs era the Arore, was the capital of ancient Sind lying at the distance of only five kilo meters. It was in 1712 then Sukkur along with the rest of caravans rested here while traveling to the Khurassan through Bolan pass lying at the distance of about two hundred kilo meters from here.
Then city saw the cosmopolitan rule of Soomra Dynasty fallowed by orthodox soomra and the arhgun rulers.In the later days of Khurassani rules it remained the center of Kalhora Mystico-poltical movement whose founder father lies in eternal rest on a hill named after him self that is Adam Shah Ji Takree. It is also resting place of the courtier and diplomat of Akber the great, known in history as Masoom Shah, the builder of the sole Minaret in Sindh. In Talpur days, it wa the garrison city during British Rule; it again became a garrison city in 1890 in the face of advancing czarist Russia.
At the birth of our country, the this city took the place of Shikarpur with all its celebrated status in commerce and trade. Sukkur city has retained that position till to day thanks to its geographical positions, linking lower Punjab and southern Balochistan.
To day it is the medium sized city with a population of about million, sending its children to about twenty five high schools and at least on dozen colleges. With such a proud history and large number of growing youth, city rightly deserved a Medical College to take care of the Tertiary Health Care Medical facilities/welfare of the people the area.
