Sukkur (Sindhi: سکر; Urdu: سکھر) is a city in the Pakistani province of Sindh along the western bank of the Indus River, directly across from the historic city of Rohri. Sukkur is the third largest city in Sindh after Karachi and Hyderabad, and is 12th most populous city in Pakistan. New Sukkur was established during the British era alongside the village of Sukkur. Sukkur's hill, along with the hill on the river island of Bukkur, form what is sometimes considered the "Gate of Sindh," in reference to the city's location along the frontier that separates the historical Sindhi heartland from the Saraiki-speaking regions to the north.
