One of the best historical building preserved well in the heart of Karachi. Best place to host an event and to spend a day. The place also has a small museum and art gallery

Good for those who have interest in history. Unfortunately the previous history is not properly highlighted though the building has been named as"Museum". Currently looks like huge display centre for ladies garments.
