The Temple of Sannth Theumalh
This is one of the most marvelous sites in Tando Adam. It is dated back to the 16th century.
It is officially said to be the final resting place of the Saint (sannth) Theumalh. However,
upon inquiring from the local Hindus it was claimed to be the birthplace of one of
the Hindu lords, hence, a temple. It has been closed down for the last 50 years and is being
neglected. It is in a very shabby condition and a complete structural collapse is on the cards.
Tomb of Tando Adam Khan
The tomb belonged to the the founder of the town. It is now left to ruins only. It’s still interesting to check out and marvel at this monument of the olden times.
