The most beautiful Kalar temple built in brickwork in the 9th century AD in Talagang Tehsil (Chakwal District) overlooks Soan river. The cut and dressed brick work with profusion of details and perfect symmetry is remarkable. There is not any proper walking track leading to the site but a good walk or motorbike among the fields can lead to the base of the hill. The temple is partially collapsed and need urgent attention of the Archaeology Department. The students of architecture can learn power of detailing if the simply undertake sketching exercise on the site.

Numerous historical mosques of Sindh, Punjab and Baluchistan are our pride and enrich our urban and regional landscapes but unfortunately some of them are in dilapidated condition. It is proper time that we may establish heritage societies in every city to clean them and make some efforts to conserve them.

Moti Goharam Tomb, Jhal Magsi Baluchistan

Moti Goharam tomb is one of the most elegant tomb in the history of architecture in Pakistan. Unfortunately such tombs have never been studied adequately. These tombs present strong connection between Central Asia and architecture of Pakistan. Octagonal in plan, corner towers, uses of glazed tiles, use of muqarnas in the pishtaq in the interior are some of the feature which put deep impression on the architecture of Sindh.
