Wazir Mansion birth place of our Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah. Its about 300-400 meters inside streets. You have to park the car on main road. On road there is sign board of No Entry. The mansion is well maintained. Its now about 160 years old. It gave goose bumps when just thought these are the same streets where Quaid-e-Azam used to play walk roam around. Chair and table of 1st Governor General Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah is also placed there. Ground floor is like library. First floor there is lounge and bed room. 2nd floor remains of Quaid-e-Azam are displayed including a Quran Sharif of that time. Staff was cooperative. Sindh govt should fix the streets as well.
This place claimed to be Qaid e Azam birth place. While it is not. The actual birth place exists in Jhirk near Thatta sindh and later during primary schooling Qaid e azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah shifted to this place in Karachi. The actual birth place is in very poor and demolishing condition. While politicians and specially dictators always try to hide or amend the actual history of Pakistan and for their ease they marked this place as a birth place to avoid the pain of intercity travelling for guard of honor drama and photo session etc.
