This is an important brackish water lake situated in District Thatta of Sindh.It is at a distance of about 85 kilometers from Karachi. In 1977 this lake was declared as a wildlife sanctuary by the Government of Sind, to protect and conserve wild life in and around the place. It is a beautiful tourist attraction of the region.

Initially the local fishermen were allowed to catch fish from the lake,because it was there livelihood. But they were not allowed to disturb the birds in any way. These strict rules to protect the birds have moved their number to a fairly large scale.
