Sukkur lies on the west bank of Indus River in Sukkur District and is the third largest city of Sindh province, in Pakistan. When Arabs invaded Sukkur (Sindh) in the 8th century(712 A.D.), they found an extreme climate of hot and cold, and called it Saqar, which means intense. Sukkur is nicknamed Darya Dino meaning the gift of river, as without the Indus the city would be a desert.
