Tando Allahyar District (Sindhi: ضلعو ٽنڊو الهيار‎) is a district in the province of Sindh in Pakistan. Prior to becoming a separate district, it was part of Hyderabad District.

History[edit]

The town was founded by Mir Allahyar Khan Talpur Qila was built in (1804). Tando Allahyar Old name is (qunday je wasi). 4 km away from Tando Allahyar there is found ancient monuments which is called ((Abul Jo Daro)) Abul was a king of old age.

The establishment of Tando Allahyar started with construction of a fort by Mir Allahyar Khan Talpur in 1709. The mud / clay fort is located at a distance of 3 kilometers from the current center of the town. This fort was built to look after his territory. A large number of people seeking security and refuge moved to this area under the protection of the Mir; these settlements gave the city a trading boom as well. As it progressed over the next decade this area started to be known as Allahyar Jo Tando (Allahyar's Town).

The shrine of old Sindhi legendary character of folk wisdom and Sufi poet Watayu Faqeer is also situated in Kuba Shareef near Rashidabad, Tando Allahar.

In 1906 during the British Raj, a Railway station was established here. This step brought about a revolution in the town, increasing its importance as an agro-trading hub. It shaped Tando Allahyar to what it is now. From Allahyar Jo Tando it became Tando Allahyar.

The British Raj brought the fort of Mir Allahyar under its official use. (This fort is now known as the Kacho Qilo); however some decorated walls from the times of Mir Allahyar Khan are still present. Since 1933 after the construction of canal, the city of Tando Allahyar turned into an agricultural heaven. Before 1947 the city had large number of Hindu followers. The temple of Baba Ramdevji Rama-Pir was a symbol Hindu-Muslim unity and peaceful co-existence. However, after the Indian Partition a number of Hindu followers left for India. The temple still stands tall in the town center attracting hundreds of pilgrims from all around the region.

Today, Tando Allahyar is a bustling urban town burdened under overpopulation; and although ill planning and lack of proper governance over the years has virtually halted the progress, this historic town still has much to offer to its residents and its ever-increasing new settlers. Many villages are connected with the city. Many trees of mango you can find where you pass this area. The best thing of this city is that this is very religious city. Very big Markaz of Sunni Hanafi (preacher) where people come on Friday night. There is an old village whose name is Khan Muhammad Bozdar. This village is about 200 years old. This village is still there; now there are 52 houses. Only Bozdar caste lives in this village. The district government avoids that historical village.

Recently, the attention of people was attracted by the Social Awareness & Assistance Forum (SAAF) Sindh, headed by Dr. Rashid Shar Baloch who has given new ideology for the village state and village Banking to financially empower people and capacity enhancement. The philosophy of SAAF Sindh based on the rural development and urban enlightenment movement towards the cognitive development of behaviour and approach.
