The once financial district is today, a traffic maze with pollution of all kind. Karachi is left to the mercy of builders. So if, whatever existed in the early 1950s, is preserved, it would not lose its history totally.

One of the busiest area of Karachi and so called financial district where all the major Bank Head Offices are along with Pakistan Central Bank Head Office. I really wish city and federal governments do some progressive work in this area, one cannot cross a road in peak hours (i.e., from 8:30AM till 7:00PM) but surprisingly there is no pedestrian...

I. I. Chandigarh road is the Central Buisness district of Karachi and the State Bank of Pakistan and head quarters of most of the corporate and Buisness houses. It is quite a congested road.

I got off on the opposite side of the road and crossing over was a huge challenge. It was peak business hours and hence not surprising. Be careful!

Ibrahim Ismail Chundrigar Road is a busy thoroughfare during office hours. One needs to be really careful while crossing the road on foot. There are some monumental buildings, including the Habib Bank Plaza, MCB Tower, State Bank, Pakistan Railways HQ, Sindh Police HQ, Finland Consulate, and other colonial buildings from the British Raj located on this thoroughfare. Almost all the... More

This is not a tourist attraction. It is a long crowded road with the head offices of major banks in Pakistan. It has a Subway (the sandwich shop) which is quite bad. Maybe that's why it is listed in the attraction list.

I am really not sure what I.I. Chundrigar road is doing on a list of tourist attractions? The road has nothing to do with fun or leisure. Its the insanely busy financial district where almost 30-40% of all major offices of the city are situated. So really nothing to do with tourism.
