    I have been to Makli almost 10 times since 1994. Visitors beware. Do not park your car near any snake charmers. The trick they use is to throw their drugged, slightly knicked mongose behind your car, while you are reversing, and scream that you have killed it, killed his income. Recommend

    @Amir: hummm i went there twice, does not remember much from first visit but the one last week, our coach was indeed parked close. But the charmer had two mangoose, one was tied with a chain to a small pole and the other was held by the little boy and tied to his wrist. So, I dont think that is the case always.
