It was the tallest building in karachi around 10years ago. Suppose to be the landmark of karachi after Quaid Mazar. Nice place to capture some images at night but watch out for security hazards.

Its a 23 storey circular building and very popular among karachites. It is in the business district I I Chundrigar Road. Its observstion deck on top floor gives a good view of city. It is better option then Hill Park observation deck.
