There is nothing much here. It is a representation of Jinnah's three points for a strong nation. Faith, Unity and Discipline. Now it is treated as a landmark on a very busy round about.

One two and three swords were initially three different circles in the Clinton area of Karachi. 3 swords are also known as teen talwar. We often cross this circle whole commuting from my home to Clinton.

Bang in the middle of an intersection, I would hardly term this as a place to visit. A landmark yes, nothing more. Also beware of the various beggars and transgender characters hanging around.
