Frere Hall, Karachi
Categories: Art Galleries, Traveler Resources, Architectural Buildings, Museums, Tourist Spots
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.

One of Karachi's landmark parks. The grounds are open and well maintained. This place is now associated with all sort of food and flower festivals. A good place to visit with the family in the evenings.

best place in Karachi. Big park and very quite and calm place in morning. Also great architecture of the Frere hall historical building
Colonial heritage site, massive public attraction but not maintained as it should have been considering the events it hosts and the attention it deserves
One of the sites which symbolize Karachi. Home to some great public events in the city. Has a gallery on the first floor. Awesome painted roof.
If you want a taste of colonialism era atmosphere without having to pay for a museum ticket, this is the place to go.
