Frere Hall, Karachi

4.4
#3 of 9 in Museums in Karachi
Admire the fusion of British and sub-continent architecture built in mid 19th century at Frere Hall, known for its distinct Venetian-Gothic look and colonial heritage. The exterior's many pointed arches and ribbed vaults evoke feelings of grandiosity and mystery. The true showstopper is the Sadequain gallery's ceiling on the upper floor-- blues, reds, oranges, and yellows fill the room in intricate psychedelic patterns. The ground floor exhibits pre-Pakistani manuscripts and books, and the surrounding Jinnah garden offers an opportunity to relax in lush greenery.

  • Public park there is no entry fee and no parking free .. Best place for photographers, mostly come there with DSLR cameras for practice. You would like to go there for morning and evening walk. This place is mostly use for book fear, food festival, car show exhibition and other events. There is no public toilet and food court .
  • A very old building of a church, which now includes an art gallery on the name of the famous Sadeqain. The place is also used for old books exhibition on Sundays regularly. Other types of exhibitions are also seen on occasional basis there from time to time.

Where to stay in Karachi

The sprawling city of Karachi has a variety of accommodations able to cater to the relatively modest amount of international visitors it receives each year. By far the most popular place to stay lies close to the sea in South Karachi. This district contains two of the main middle class neighborhoods in the city, and a high proportion of its museums, venues, and restaurants. The main hotels sit over in the commercial districts close to the station, with some budget-friendly guesthouses and hostels sitting in their shadows.
