Ayub Bridge, Sukkur, Pakistan

Lansdowne bridge and Ayub arch bridge over the Indus River, near the cities of Sukkur and Rohri, Sindh Province, not far upstream from the Sikkur Barrage.
Sukkur, Pakistan. This image was taken during the summer 2005 flooding. The island is connected via the Sukkur bridge (north) and the Landsdowne bridge (south). Southwest of the island is the Tomb of the 7 Sisters, a female-only allowed shrine to a group of 7 pious sisters who took refuge in a cave and then prayed to Allah to be saved from dishonor by a group of drunken soldiers. Allah responded by causing a cave-in and killing them before the soldiers could get to them.

Searched for a map showing flooded areas in Pakistan. The map highlighted Sukkur, Pakistan, which is the answer. First guess, too.
Come on over and play a scavenger hunt in google streetview at my game mapferret.net 😉
