Karachi – the City of lights, the undisputed heart of the economy and (hands down) the city that serves the best Biryaani. An elaborate tour of the city of lights is what would do justice to this royal city of Karachi. Visiting Karachi and not staying and having a detailed tour would be a blasphemy to tourism of all sorts. The places we will be taking you to are what define Karachi - the peaceful old city, the cool breeze at the beach, Quaid’s Mausoleum, different markets, beautiful mosques and towers, cathedrals, food streets and… join us to know the rest!

The structure is built in buff-colored Gizri stone and shows a heightened sensitivity to detailing and emphasis on carving and decoration. The architecture takes the form of an Eleanor cross. Eleanor crosses were a series of 12 monuments erected in England by King Edward I between 1291 and 1294, in memory of his wife, Eleanor of Castile. Three of the original Eleanor Crosses still exist in England. The Star of David is also visible on its exterior. Many similar neo-Gothic style structures were built in Victorian England, and impressive clock towers are found all over Pakistan.Duration: 30 minutes
