Frere Hall, Karachi

Frere Hall, Karachi (must see)

Frere Hall is one of the few well-preserved buildings from the days of the British Raj that still exists in Karachi. It was built in honour of Sir Henry Bartle Edward Frere (1815–1884), who was known for promoting economic development in Karachi. From 2011 Frere hall is open to the public. On Sundays there is a book bazaar in the courtyards where it is possible to purchase some old out of print books amongst others. The rest of the week it is possible to visit the Sadequain gallery, home to the famous Sadequain mural called "Arz-o-Samawat." (Heaven and Earth).
