But in truth, the mud from Volcanos took an interesting approach and gave Gwadar an iconic landmark – And the sea view of relishing blue waters of Arabian Sea is mind-blowing.
2. Ormara – In memory of Alexander’s General
We have always have heard about Sindh being the gate for Great Emperors to enter this region of Sub-continent – thus Karachi. But did you know, that Alexzander the Great had chosen Gwadar for his forces to rest?
In fact, the point Ormara is named after Ormuz, a highly regarded General of Alexandra’s Army. Ormara is the point in the Arabian Sea that is halfway from Karachi and halfway from Gwadar. Currently, Pakistan Navy has Ormara under their control. The sight of ‘massive Pak Navy crafts proudly standing in the Arabian Sea’ is worth visiting Ormra in Gwadar.
