The Dawood Foundation has restored a 1930's home to reminisce about the glorious history of Karachi, its citizens and its welcoming nature. TDF Ghar is a tribute to this city. Under an old almond tree, with views of the Mazar-e-Quaid and original hand-crafted tiles, Hajiani Hanifa Bai’s 1930s home, is an enchanting sanctuary in the heart of old Karachi’s Jamshed Quarters. Now called TDF Ghar, the home retains its heritage features, but has been transformed into a public space, to re-live the true spirit of residents of this old cosmopolitan city, when it was truly a city of lights, of wide leafy boulevards, of opportunity, of discourse, of harmonious co-existence, where tolerance was prevalent. Seeing TDF Ghar at twilight, makes for a magical evening with views of the Bagh-e-Mazar e Quaid. Shahab Ghani & Associates volunteered to assist TDF in restoring TDF Ghar as part of their contribution to the city.
With our custom trip planner, Karachi attractions like TDF Ghar can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • It is a lovely place to spend some me time or spend some quality time with friends. Everything about the place was perfect except the services. I waited for like 1 and a half hour for my tea and cheese paratha. The entry fees is 100. Which is fine. You can spend hours there. Daily activities with unique ideas is a plus. I loved the environment.
  • This was the best experience of my life. It almost took me back in time when we were getting independence from British India. I love the decorations and the antique gadgets that they have. I wish that more places like these should be build in Karachi so that the new generation could learn more about the history. More over their chef is the best, it looked like that i was eating a homemade lunch. I suggest people to do visit this place.
