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.

  • 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.
  • 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... 👍👍👍
  • Historic place. Every thing related to Quid e Azam is found here. Great atmosphere, well maintained. Loved by kids
