Hyderabad, second largest city in Sind and third largest city of Pakistan, was the capital of the Sind province before the British rule. The city was founded in 1768 by Ghulam Shah Kalhora, the ruler of Sind. The city derived its name from Haidar Ali, the son-in-law of Prophet Mohammed. After the Kalhoras, the city came under the reign of Talpur rulers, who were at the helm till 1843. Later, Hyderabad came under the British, who shifted the capital to Karachi.
