Karachi is no longer Pakistan’s capital, but this major port on the Arabian Sea is still the country's financial capital and the undisputed centre of the nation’s economy. Workers from across the country settle in Karachi, and as a result, it is one of the most diverse and cosmopolitan cities in Pakistan. There's a definite buzz in Karachi, and a few days in this city can tell you more about modern Pakistani life than the historic Mughal architecture in Lahore or the scenic mountains of the Hindu Kush.
The capital of Sindh province and Pakistan's largest city, lively Karachi is locally termed the City of Lights.

When you arrive in Karachi, get your first glimpse of the local colour by wandering through the Empress Market (named after Queen Victoria, Empress of India), one of central Karachi's main landmarks and a maze-like covered bazaar dominated by a Gothic-Mughal-style clocktower, or visit the Defence Housing Authority Mosque (Masjid-i-Tuba), an eccentric but remarkable structure under one vast dome (claimed to be the world's largest) with no supporting columns or vaults. The white marble dome has thousands of mirror tiles, giving the impression of twinkling stars. Many architecturally interesting British Raj buildings are now used as Pakistani government offices, including Frere Hall, but Holy Trinity Cathedral is undoubtedly one of Karachi's finest remaining examples. Inside are fascinating plaques in honour of the British soldiers who died in various campaigns. Also, Karachi features a wealth of art galleries that display a wide array of works from Asia.
Manora Island is only a short ferry ride away from Keamari Harbour, the entrance to Karachi's busy port. The island was the site of the fort where Karachi's Talpur rulers surrendered to the British; today it features a small beach overlooked by the remains of a 19th-century Hindu temple and a British lighthouse. The Pakistan Maritime Museum offers interesting galleries, including the Naval Gallery, the Marine Life Gallery and the Maritime History Gallery, and its fascinating outdoor exhibits include a midget submarine and a mine sweeper.
