Mansura (Brahmanabad)



Mansura (Arabic: منصورہ) was the capital of the Arab empire in Sind. When Mohammad Bin Qasim conquered Sindh in 711 A.D., he chose Brahmanabad as his capital city. According to Idrisi, the name of the city was changed to Al-Mansura in honor of Caliph Al-Mansur (754-775 AD) the second Khalifa of the Abbasid dynasty. Mansura enjoys an important position in Muslim history as this was the first city which was built according to the principles of town-planning. And the experience gained over here was used in Baghdad seventeen years later. According to historians, Mansura was a beautiful town which had vast orchards of mangoes and groves of date palms. The ruins of Mansura are spread over an area of four miles in circumference near the modern city of Shahdadpur. The most significant ruins found in Mansura is of the big courtyard of a Jamia Masjid.
