It is the former residence of Miss Fatima Jinnah, sister of the Founder of Pakistan. Now, it has been converted into a veritable museum which carries temperorary collections. No permanent collections are here.
The structure is built in Hindu-British style and is made of pink stone which gives it a unique style.
Tickets for adults cost Rs.10. Free entrance for children.
Timings for the museum are from 11 am to 7 pm.
Hazrat Abdullah Shah Ghazi (RA) is the patron Saint of Karachi. People, most of them Muslims, come here to pay homage to him from across the country. His tomb is built on a very high platform, but people say that his actual grave is downstairs. I recommend it because I think you cannnot understand the life in Pakistan without understanding these 'mazars' (tombs). They are a micro version of any city where they exist.
It is at Ghizri, Clifton. Ask any taxi driver and he will take you there.
These buildings were generally built by British, but rich Hindus and Muslims also built some splendid structures. Most of these can be found in the old areas of Karachi. They include Kharadar, Mithadar, Saddar, Burns Road and Tower areas. I recommend them because they are part of city's landscape. The good examples are KMC Head Office and Mohatta Palace.
KMC Head Office is itself an address. Other important British-era structures are nearby. Ask your taxi or rickshaw driver to take you there. And don't miss the Mohatta Palace, which is now a museum.
