The glowing tomb can be seen for miles at night. Khan Liaquat Ali Khan, the first Prime Minister of Pakistan, and Jinnah's sister, Fatima Jinnah, are also buried besides Jinnah. Official and military ceremonies take place here on special occasions, especially on 23 March, 14 August, 11 September and 25 December. Dignitaries and officials from foreign countries also visit this place.

The mausoleum is located in a 53 hectare park and the size of the building is 75x75m on ground and 43m high, built on a 4m high platform. In each wall is placed an entrance. 15 successive fountains lead to the platform from one side and from all sides terraced avenues lead to the gates.

  7. 7. 7 Clifton Beach or Sea view is a beach in Karachi, Pakistan located on the Arabian Sea. It is one of the neighborhoods of Clifton, Saddar Town. It was the world's most popular silver-sand beach and health resort during 20th centurybut in 2003 it was affected by an oil spill.[1] The beach has attractions for families and tourists, including beachside horse and camel rides, amusement parks, restaurants, and swimming in the Arabian Sea. A gated residential area called Sea view Apartments lies close to a section of Clifton beach known as Sea view beach or simply "Sea view". Further ahead lays Darakhshan Villas which comprises residential townhouses and huts. Another attraction in this area is the recently constructed Cineplex cinema for the people who reside in DHA and Clifton. Hollywood films are mostly screened here along with some selected Bollywood films. The cinemas are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and other entertainment sections Soon as the sun sets, flood lights come up and the picnic continues till midnight. The Defence Housing Authority is fighting erosion by badding more sand, which may change the shape and features of the beach. Other beaches close to the city include Sandspit, Hawke's Bay, and Paradise Point (a sandstone rock promontory with a natural arch), sonehra point, French beach, cape Mount, Manora beach, but Clifton Beach is the most popular picnic destination in Karachi.
  8. 8. 8 The National Museum of Pakistan, Karachi established in 1951 in historic building of Frere Hall and continued to be there till July, 1969, meanwhile the Government realizing the importance of the National Institution favored the construction a separate building in Burns Garden. The new building’s inauguration ceremony was performed by the then President of Pakistan General Yahya Khan on 21st February, 1970. The Museum represents a complete vista of Pakistan Cultural Heritage from Stone Age down to the birth of Pakistan. There were only 4 galleries during shifting, but they have been increased to 11. You will be amazed to know that there is a gallery called Quran Gallery which consists of more than 300 copies of Quran; out of which 52 are rare manuscripts. Other collections includes artifacts from Indus Valley Civilization, paintings relating to different ages and subjects and a collection of 58,000 coins. There is a rich collection of nearly 70,000 research books and publications as well that are related to archeology.
  9. 9. 9 The Mohatta Palace is located in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. It was built by ShivratanChandraratanMohatta, an ambitious self-made businessman from Marwaras his summer home in 1927. The architect of the palace was Agha Ahmed Hussain However, Mohatta could enjoy this building for only about two decades before independence of Pakistan and he left Karachi for India. He built the Palace in the tradition of stone palaces in Rajasthan, using pink Jodhpur stone in combination with the local yellow stone from Gizri. The amalgam gave the palace a distinctive presence in an elegant neighbourhood, characterised by Mughal architecture which was located not far from the sea. The palace has an area of 18,500 sq ft (1,720 m2 ) and its facade is trimmed with windows, stone brackets, spandrels, domes, balustrades with floral motifs and exquisite railings. There are nine domes, with a centre dome in the middle; while the windows in the front portion opening out into the garden are of blue colour and those in the rear area are arched windows with stained glass. The palace has large stately rooms designed for entertainment on the ground floor and more private facilities on the first floor, where there is a terrace provided with a shade from intense sunlight. The palace is solely made up of teak wood with a polished staircase, long corridors and doors opening within doors. The "barsati” (terrace) of the Mohatta Palace had a beautiful family temple dedicated to Hindu God, lord Shiva. Mohatta Palace was a luxurious home built in the late 1920s, consisting of 18,500 sq.yards. The elegant palace is built on different levels and was a summer house for Mr.Mohatta for two decades before he left for India in 1947. There are three levels, basement, ground floor, first floor till you reach the roof. The basement that lies on the north side of the building is quite small and comprises a staircase going downwards
  10. 10. 10 towards a hot water pool chamber which has a connected changing room. They say it had a hot and cold water system attached, which would supply the water to the pool. Near the pool chamber are small ventilators, two on each side which may have been used as a source of sunlight and letting out steam. Similarly there was a door leading to a secret tunnel that leads from the grounds of the palace all the way to a subterranean Hindu temple less than a kilometer away. This tunnel was apparently built to provide a safe passage for the Hindu wife of ShivratanChandratanMohatta for her daily worship.
  11. 11. 11 The Quaid-e-Azam House and Museum, earlier known as the Flagstaff House, is located on the Fatima Jinnah Road in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan, and like almost all other houses on the road, was originally owned by a Parsi business tycoon. Father of the Nation, Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, purchased the house on the eve of Independence and later Madar-i-MillatMohtarma Fatima Jinnah lived for many years here. The building was designed by architect Moses Somake. This probably is Somake’s first known building which on one hand is modest and, on the other charming. The bungalow, which was later designated as the Flagstaff House because of the residence of the General Officer Commanding, is situated at the most exclusive area of the Staff Lines. It is surprising that an architect little known at that time was asked to design this building. The house was probably built in 1890. Somake had a habit of signing his buildings by inscribing his name in an obscure place that could be found with little effort. In the case of the Flagstaff House, it is etched on an inner face of the porch. Somake’s work on the Flagstaff House was confined to the main double storey bungalow, while the annex was added to the premises at a later date. Somake lavished his attention on
  12. 12. 12 the façade facing the Bonus Road, which was the main thoroughfare at the time, probably due to a tight budget. The frontage has a symmetrical arrangement, with two wings flanking the central porch that carries the projecting part of the verandah. Simple arcading, carved pilasters and sloping roofs using red clay tiles are the architectural ingredients of this attractive bungalow. An unusual element is the introduction of semi-circular balconies, which also appear in the City Courts Building built at a later date. Finely chiselled and carved features embellish the front façade, while the rest of the building is in a hammer-dressed masonry. Quaid-i-Azam visited the Flagstaff House in 1943, liked it and showed interest in acquiring it. Although owned by a Parsi business magnate SohrabKavasji, it had been requisitioned as the residence of General Hind, GOC. The deed of purchase in the name of “Mr Mohammed Ali Jinnah, Barrister-at-Law, Bombay” was registered in March 1944. After the partition, the bungalow was furnished with the belongings and furnishings of the Quaid that had been brought from his Delhi and Bombay residences, and was kept in readiness, to be occupied by him, possibly after his retirement. After the death of the Father of the Nation in 1948, Fatima Jinnah lived in the house from 1948 to 1964. Due to prime location several commercial organisations were interested in acquiring the property not for conservation but for demolition and constructing high buildings. Besides a number of public sector companies also tried to acquire the premises to erect a new building thereon. The bungalow lay neglected till 1985 when, as a result of the pleas by the Heritage Foundation, it was acquired by the Government of Pakistan; restored and declared a national monument the Quaid-i-Azam House Museum. It now houses furniture, relics, and other items of the Father of the Nation.
