Frere Hall, Karachi

4.2
#3 of 11 in Museums in Karachi
Admire the fusion of British and sub-continent architecture built in mid 19th century at Frere Hall, known for its distinct Venetian-Gothic look and colonial heritage. The exterior's many pointed arches and ribbed vaults evoke feelings of grandiosity and mystery. The true showstopper is the Sadequain gallery's ceiling on the upper floor-- blues, reds, oranges, and yellows fill the room in intricate psychedelic patterns. The ground floor exhibits pre-Pakistani manuscripts and books, and the surrounding Jinnah garden offers an opportunity to relax in lush greenery. See Frere Hall and all Karachi has to offer by arranging your trip with our Karachi vacation maker website .
