Manghopir’s Hot Springs

Dr. Sohail Ansari

Over centuries Manghopir’s hot springs has continued to attract thousands of people from far-flung areas who gather there for a bath. These hot sulphur springs, legend has it, have miraculous healing powers that can cure most diseases of the skin. It had brought a large number of lepers from very distant areas as well.

J.R. Martin, collector of Karachi, took a keen interest in the development and improvement of these baths in Manghopir.

Currently, Mama bath is the only functional one amongst Manghopir’s six hot springs.

Manghopir is a very good example of inter-faith and multi-communal harmony.
