Abstract

Sindh has a long and rich cultural history dating back from Mohenjodaro Civilization (2500 B.C.).It has received waves of migrants from northern India, Gujrat, Punjab, Arab countries, Balochistan and other areas.The migrants have been fully absorbed in Sindhi culture. A number of indigenous house types in Sindh have developed. However the Punjabi house type brought by the migrant from East Punjab from 1932 onward has not fully acquired Sindhi imprint. In the wake of invasion of modern architecture the rural houses are likely to undergo changes.Therefore the study of folk houses in Sindh has become important.
