About meBalochistan Archives is an executive agency of the Government of Balochistan which serves as the main repository for official records and documents of historical significance. Archivescontain evidence of financial and legal commitments, provide information about significant historical events, and help protect the civil and legal property rights of the citizens. In short, archives are the pillars on which the foundation of history stands and, therefore, require preservation and special care.We are the guardians of the most significant national and provincial level documents in Balochistan Province. Currently, we hold more than 20,000 files, printed papers, books, and manuscripts pertaining to the colonial and post-independence period in Balochistan.

About my libraryThis selection of books, manuscripts, and original files the history of pre-colonial and colonial Balochistan has been digitized by the staff of Balochistan Archives as a seed for a larger digital repository. These include English language books and original files from the collections of Balochistan Archives as well as Persian, Urdu, Balochi, Brahui, and Pashto manuscripts loaned to us by private citizens for digitization. The first two books below include a Persian manuscript titled Akhbar-ul-Abrar on the History of Ahmadzai Khans of Kalat and its English translation by a British colonial officer titled The Country and Family of Ahmadzai Khans of Kalat. You can experience the pleasure of online reading by turning the pages of these rare books and manuscripts with the click of your mouse.
