Mazar-E-Quaid, Karachi

4.5
Mazar-E-Quaid, the tomb of the founder of Pakistan, stands nobly in the center of a vast and tranquil landscaped garden. The pure white marble mausoleum to Quaid-e-Azam (Great Leader) Muhammad Ali Jinnah, completed in 1970 by architect Yahya Merchant, also provides the final resting place to Jinnah's sister, Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah (Mother of the Nation) and Pakistan's first prime minister, Liaquat Ali Khan. Check out the museum underneath the tomb to see personal belongings of Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Expect to take your shoes off and do a bit of walking without them.

    Mazar-e-Quaid (Tomb of Leader) is the iconic monument of Pakistan. Tomb is well architecturally built. Visitors loved to come here and take selfies.

    A historical place. Here lies the founder of Pakistan ; Quaid I Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.Must visit when you are in Karachi. Needs more attention and facilities for the general public. The guards on Duty are mostly rude and ill mannered. The parking for public is on the Shahrah e Quaideen side across the road. They charge Rs 40. Considering that this is a national monument government must improve the Service. There are many local vendors selling juices, Pepsi cans and Water bottles. There is a small canteen at the entrance with provision of tea.

    There-in lies a great man, our great Quaid who single handedly defeated the back stabbing hindu terrorists and the ever treacherous britsh to change the course of history and carved out a separate land for us.

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.
