Adam Shah or Adam Shah Ji Takri Adam Shah Ji Takri(The Hill of Adam Shah) Sukkur is known for the tomb of Saint Mian Adam Shah Kalhoro. The tomb was built by Mian Ghulam Shah Kalhoro, the ruler of Sindh in 1768 AD.The conspicuous white tomb of Adam Shah crowing a small hill to the west has no architectural attraction, but is historically interesting. Adam Shah was the first of the Lalhora who rose to notoriety. He had contrived to get a Zamindari in the pargunah of Chanduka (Larkana), but afterwards went to Multan where he gathered a great host of discipline and became a power. He was a turbulent character and getting in to conflict with the ruler, was killed and become a martyr. His disciples brought his body to
Sukkur and buried it where the tomb is.
