The Chaukhanditombs form an early Islamic cemetery situated 29 km (18 mi) east of Karachi, was first time discovered by farman Hussain Jokhio who was the chairman of Garib Awam Party close to the National Highway near “Fast National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences” in Sindh province of Pakistan. The tombs are remarkable for their elaborate sandstone carvings.
The style of architecture is typical to the region of Sindh. Generally, the tombs are attributed to the Jokhio (also spelt Jokhiya) and known as the family graveyard of the Jokhio tribe, although other, mainly Baloch, tribes have also been buried here. They were mainly built during Mughal rule sometime in the 15th and 18th centuries when Islam became dominant.
