Kalankot masjid ruins, Sindh

I stumbled upon this decaying site on 23rd March, 2013, a national holiday. The day was beautiful with splashes of clouds here and there. They made this photograph - and this visit - even more beautiful than expected.

I was, however, once again saddened to see the decay of this once-beautiful and imposing masjid in the corner of a Kalankot fort, 5 Kms from Makli graveyard on Sujawal bypass. No one is caring for it and there are reports of some stealing of the sites' area by land grabbers. Govt. is not behind any grabber. They are building a new jail here. How sad and sick is that!
