This is the tomb of Jam Nido, a Summa ruler who reigned from 1461-1508.One of the largest necropolises in the world, with a diameter of approximately 8 kilometers, Makli Hill is supposed to be the burial place of some “125,000” Sufi saints. It is located on the outskirts of Thatta, the capital of lower Sind until the seventeenth century, in what is the southeastern province of present-day Pakistan.

Trees covered in spider webs in the flood-affected areas of K.N. Shah, located near Dadu in Pakistan's Sindh province, on December 7, 2010. The cocooned trees were a side-effect of spiders escaping flood waters in the area. Although people in this part of Sindh have never witnessed this phenomenon, they report there are now less mosquitoes, thus reducing the risk of malaria.
