Mazar-E-Quaid, Karachi

4.4
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.

  • It is definitely worth a visit once in your lifetime. The tomb is simple and elegant but I find it very appropriate to the stature of Mr Jinnah. Best time to visit is morning as evenings can get crowded (unless you are like me who enjoy the typical vivacious crowd of Pakistan...poor, chaotic and unmannerly at times, but so full of life. After all it provides a cheap source of entertainment for the entertainment starved Karachiites ). Ample parking space...take a wheelchair for elderly as the walks can be long. The guard changing ceremony (happens every 30 mins) is always fun for the kids. The museum is small but interesting. Needs a lot of improvement in maintaining the surrounding gardens and educating the public to care for it.
  • Excellent place to go with your family but not recommended on weekends or holiday. Too crowded. Mein is good and the breeze is awesome on a cloudy day. Grounds are reasonably well kept but could be better. Great place with historical significance
  • Resting place of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, father of the nation. One of major attraction in Pakistan. It should have more time so people can visit in evening too.
  • Here reside a founder of Pakistan. Every Pakistani must go there and offer fateha.
  • Tourists must go there. All original things that belongs to QUAID E AZAM MUHAMMAD ALI JINNAH are kept safe and to showcase to tourists in very cheap entry ticket. But the whole place is strictly needs to b renovated amd maintained specially the fountains and grass it looks abandoned. And many little things need to b better

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.
