Haji Ali is a mosque and dargah (which means tomb) located on an islet in the middle of the sea. The only way to access Haji Ali is via a thin narrow strip; the walkway.

Good, but accessing it through a narrow strip of land is the bad part which is stinky. Hearing live qawalli is divine experience.

We visited the mosque last Saturday. The location is extremely peaceful & the architecture truly breathtaking. We spent over an hour there with our guide as she took us through the history. We came away wondering just how on earth India & Pakistan went through all the agonies of partition.

The sea on either side on the way into the Haji Ali is quite dirty and polluted, in which you may see children enjoying swimming. But, Haji Ali itself is quite a good... More
