Gumbad-i-Syed Mehmood – Kharan Balochistan


These tombs are located in Tump near the village of Naurazabad Kharan. The Kharan Gazetteer records its name as Gumbad-i-Malik Shaho. There’s tomb are alike the tomb of Washuk and Panjgur Sahoo Qalander tomb.

There are two tombs in this location one is in relatively better condition than most other as we can see the external brick-work and brick paneling very clearly. In fact, we can see the mud-plaster (made from mixture of mud and straw) lining the interior/inside the dome as well.

The dome of the second gumbad has fallen down, unfortunately. There are dispersed remains of around 15-20 pukka (burnt-brick) graves spread near these gumbads and the remains of kiln used for making/firing bricks. This evidence suggests that the two gumbads were part of a large necropolis or burial complex.
