Culture and Heritage
Jamshoro is the Indus Valley's main entry point. It has a well-known and diverse cultural heritage. Sindh's culture, language, tradition, and history have long held a special place in the hearts of its people. Approximately 95 percent of the city's population is made up of immigrants from various sections of interior Sindh who arrived between 1948 and 2001. As a result, the city is home to a varied range of Sindhi clans and ethnic groups, primarily from Dadu, Jamshoro, Khairpur, Sukkur, and Larkana districts. Pathans, Baloch people, and Seraikis make up a sizable community in the city, which is mostly Sindhi.
There are also small settlements of Brahuis, Punjabis, and Muhajirs. With 95.07 percent of the population, Islam is the dominant religion. 3.87 percent of the population follows Hinduism (including those from Scheduled Castes), whereas 0.98 percent follow Christianity. Apart from being a historical monument, it is also Sindh's largest educational hub, with three major universities. Jamshoro, on the other hand, is one of the province's most attractive and calm cities. As a result, the people who live here are likely the best educated, causing the campuses to be overcrowded with students. The literacy rate is 46.47 percent, with males accounting for 55.14 percent and females accounting for 36.71 percent.
However, men wear traditional shalwar kameez with a Sindhi cap and Ajrak. For Sindhis, Ajrak and topi are considered a symbol of honor, respect, and pride. The women wear heavy traditional garments known as "Sindhi bhart," which feature famous mirror work and hand embroidery. The Sindhi bhart "Hurmoocho" is unique and original. There are also colorful dupattas known as "Chunri," which come in a variety of colors and styles. Other clothing items include "Ralhi" (quilt), which contains appliqué work and is used as a bedsheet cover, as well as for decorating walls and other purposes.
