Sukkur is the third largest city of Sindh province, situated on the west bank of Indus River in Pakistan in Sukkur District. When Arabs invaded Sukkur (Sindh) in the 8th century(712 A.D.), they found an extreme climate (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.
