One of the best architecture of Karachi... The area is well maintained & guarded as the Father of the Nation is buried there.. Most foreign & local dignitaries pay their respect to Quaid-e-Azam, the founder of Pakistan.

Saw the changing of the guards at the Mausoleum built in a modern style in white marble. There is a small museum there housing some of Jinnah's personal belongings. You have to take your shoes off.

As most of you must be aware that Mr.Mohammad Ali Jinnah was the founder of Pakistan. He died in Quetta and was buried in Karachi.

While the lawns were all dry and the fountains were not working, it was nice to see the inside of Mazar and also, change of guards. For my daughter, it was a good experience.

Again, one of the few tourist attractions in Karachi that are interesting to see. Lots of....unique...characters hanging around but it was a beautiful building. There is quite a bit of security around which is reassuring. If you have time, check it out!

Went to the Mazar-e-Quaid. I was in Sialkot the week before so went to Illama Iqbal's house, so had to visit the Mazar while in Karachi :) It's beautiful of course, packed with people, and you got to take your shoes off and pay the guy to keep it until you come back.
