Mazar-E-Quaid, Karachi

4.3
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.

  • Located in the heart of the city is this imposing structure made of white marble that glistens during the day as it reflects the sunlight and glows at night under the artificial lights. It is the fina...  more »
  • His grave is beautiful and there is a small museum about life Quaid-e-Azam (Jinnah). Unfortunately the grounds outside the building of the Tomb should be beautiful, some are not.

  • -To the diversely beautiful Pakistan Jinnah envisioned. "You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed - that has nothing to do with the business of the State"
  • Place is surrounded by a such a huge portion of land which can easily be developed into a public space and that too a productive one, but as soon as one enters from the main gate it is obvious that the place is not taken care of by the Government. They charge Rs. 20/- as an entrance fee, and I don't know why do they charge a fee as people go their to pay respects to Father of the Nation. Entrance should be free, absolutely free and Government should pay attention towards development of the place.
  • Official and military ceremonies take place here on special occasions, such as on 23 March (Pakistan Day), 14 August (Independence Day), 11 September (the anniversary of Jinnah's death) and 25 December (Jinnah's birthday). Dignitaries and officials from foreign countries also visit the mausoleum during official tours. On 14 August 2017, Pakistan's Independence Day, it was used for paying a tribute to Jinnah through 3d projection mapping show by 3D illumination.
  • I had a great time with my family there but there is a lot a shocking things such as the conditions of gardens are very bad in it and broken footpath no quality food even for kids no separate prayer area for ladies. There is big space around the tomb of Qaid and we can use it for different things.
  • Had a great time. Very good place to spend ur afternoon. Good to bring kids and tell them about the heritage. The museum and the history in it was just unbelievable... 👍👍👍
