As far as I know, the Muslim empires and kingdoms in the Indian subcontinent were either based in Lahore or Delhi.

I searched for the history of the top 10 largest cities in Pakistan. I only found Lahore and Peshawar had connections with some Muslim empires/kingdoms where Peshawar was used as the winter capital by some dynasties.

Did any Muslim empire/kingdom have its capital in modern Pakistan except Lahore?

The various capitals of the Princely States that joined Pakistan do not count as I am interested in the period before the British colonization.

Thatta was the capital for multiple dynasties, including the Muslim Soomra which ruled Sindh from there continuously in 1026–1356.

    Can you add some details to this (just a paragraph or two)? Just a single sentence isn't really much of an answer... Also, are there any other examples other than Thatta. Jul 28, 2020 at 0:42
