Appreciate the luxurious architecture of Mohatta Palace Museum, acquaint yourself with the country’s culture, and pore through some fascinating exhibitions. Devoted to the arts of Pakistan, the exterior of the museum features stonework depicting flowers, peacocks, and other adornments. The mansion was built by the Mohatta family in the 1920s as a summer house, and remains notable for its beautiful gardens, which surround the main palace building, which consists of a basement, ground floor, and first floor. Long corridors, terraces, and double doors add to the palace's overall luxurious style.

  • Mohatta Palace is one of those hidden gems that you can't miss in the hustle bustle of the city. You see it barely peeking over rooftops as you zip along admiring the new tall buildings going up around the area. Do make a point of stopping in to see a building that harkens back to an old era and the rich history of the city before it lost in an urban jungle.
  • It was one of the places that I was proudly bragging about back in 2012 in US. Visiting it in 2019 made me fall in love with it even more. A lover of architecture that I am, it was heaven for me. The interior was just as pretty as the exterior. The fact that the entrance costs you next to nothing is something that should be appreciated and hence should be visited more. Their exhibitions exude quality and the peek at culture it allows through them is 😍
