Karachi is the capital of Sindh province. Sindh is the second largest province is Pakistan. It has its own High Court. The building of High Court is another example of good architecture by British Empire in sub continent. The building is built of stone and looks very elegant. High Court id the biggest court in province.
The building of Karachi Metropolitan Corporation is one of the oldest in Karachi. The building is old and built well before the independence of 1947. the whol building is made of stones like any other old building of British time in subcontinent. The building is absolutely awful from inside as it has not been maintained at all.
This palace is situated in the area of Clifton, built in 1933 in a Mughal Ghothic style with imposing domes and cupolas. The palace was used as the residence of Quid-e-Azam's sister, Fatima Jinnah until her death in 1967. It is also known as Qasr-e-Fatima Jinnah.
University of Karachi
The most impressing thing, I found in Karachi was University of Karachi. I am not sure about the education standard and facilities but, place is really good. It is spread on a big place has plenty of buildings of different departments. You need some sort of identity card to get into University; luckily I had my driving licence so not much problem to get in
Independence monument .
This monument is dedicated for those people who lost their lives in the fight of Independence in 1947. Pakistan used to be a British colony before 1947. in the fight of independence thousands of people lost their lives and this monument pays tributes to those people.
Pakistan National Shipping Corporation building is one of the most important buildings in Karachi.
It is nothing special but in a city of an underdeveloped country this building seems to have centre of attention. It is located next to sea which makes a beautiful view.
One of the really pleasant surprises in Karachi was that post box. Royal mail style post boxes were outside main post office. I didn’t see those boxes anywhere else in the city. I think that those post boxes must be from British Empire before the independence. The state of those boxes are not great and I wouldn’t have courage to post my important letter in that box.
This is one of the oldest parts of Karachi. There are MULTITUDES of law offices here, crammed in places you wouldn't imagine, because the City Court is close by. There are old old buildings, and the original Sabri Nihari. Take an experienced driver with, and just cruise the narrow streets from the comfort of your air conditioned car.
This is the main commercial area of Karachi. Most of the main banks, offices of international companies, travel agents and money exchange office could be found here. Few hotels are also around this area. But trust me this area is full of pollutions.
This is one of the best mosques in the town. It is also situated in the rather posh area of Karachi, which makes it safe to visit. But you can’t just go inside the mosque just like that. You need to take permission if you are not Muslim from the people who are running it. Second you go bear foot inside, you need to take your shoes off. Its not very difficult most of the people of Karachi are not that bad. They could be very helpful.
Pakistanis love to shop till they drop.A great place for that is THE AWAMI MARKAZ, which has all ranges of shops to cater for everything you could possibly need at reasonable prices, from designer clothes to shoes,food,furniture,resturants,its all air conditioned and very spacious
Generally, just take care of yourself. This city is known to have quite frequent terrorist activities with bombs exploding every few weeks or months. Just be very careful, especially at night.
A sense of danger and adventure??
Bakra Eid is a very famous festival for which we buy beautiful animals for slaughtering in this review you will see some of them.
To control the bulls the locals pluck a rope through the nose of of the animal by a big needle which is very painful, I was very sad to watch it but it is necessary to control the big bull.
