one of the well preserved colonial landmark of the city still fascinates onlookers. Most of the exterior is in original state and reminds the glorious past of the metropolis. I went there first time recently for a product launch of a multinational company, highly regretted that why it took me so long to visit this place. Fore garden is very... More

Frere Hall is not very well known by its name and hence I gotta mention it is the park right opposite Marriot. I dont know how but this is one park that is very well cared for, the grass remains green almost all throughout the year. Recently it is being rented out for exhibitions, concerts etc which could eventually lead... More

The garden is reasonably good and attracts lot of visitors, small vendors sell stuff at the main entrance of the park. Unfortunately, Frere Hall was closed for number of years as the US Consulate was located right opposite... More

This place is round the corner where I live. I often go there to walk in the park. The main building is very impressive. Many years ago it was renovated and named as Sadeqain Gallery in dedication to the country's one of the most famous calligraphist and poet.

This was an incredible place to go see, one of the few tourist attractions in Karachi worth going to. The building itself is a library with a little art exhibit at the top. It is a beautiful building with all sorts of old books. It is a bit poorly maintained but they were doing work on it. There is also... More

The building was beautiful! Other than that there was nothing special. For security reasons I wasn't allowed to enjoy the other activities nearby like eating or enjoying the lawn.
