Create an itinerary including Frere Hall
Admire the fusion of British and sub-continent architecture built in mid 19th century at Frere Hall, known for its distinct Venetian-Gothic look and colonial heritage. The exterior's many pointed arches and ribbed vaults evoke feelings of grandiosity and mystery. The true showstopper is the Sadequain gallery's ceiling on the upper floor-- blues, reds, oranges, and yellows fill the room in intricate psychedelic patterns. The ground floor exhibits pre-Pakistani manuscripts and books, and the surrounding Jinnah garden offers an opportunity to relax in lush greenery. See Frere Hall and all Karachi has to offer by arranging your trip with our Karachi vacation maker website.

  • Normally close all the time and shopper were flying every were
  • A serene colonial era park. an iconic library is situated in center built during the British rule in undivided India. . The place is frequented by public from all corners of the city as It's located in heart of city . Foreigners love to hang out here due close proximity of 5 star hotels and quite a few foreign consulates are situated near by. In the aftermath of 9/11 attacks in USA the park remained deserted since the security cordoned the surrounding area of U.S. consulate . Today it's open again and hustle bustle can be seen again.
