Mazar-E-Quaid

Mazar-e-Quaid also known as the Jinnah Mausoleum or the National Mausoleum, is the final resting place of Quaid-e-Azam (Great Leader) Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, as well as his sister, Māder-e Millat (Mother of the Nation) Fatima Jinnah, and Liaquat Ali Khan, the first Prime Minister of Pakistan. Located in the Jamshed Quarters neighborhood of Karachi, the mausoleum , completed in the 1960s, is an iconic symbol of Karachi throughout the world. It is one of most favoured tourist destination of foreign tourists visiting Karachi.

The location is usually calm and tranquil which is significant considering that it is in the heart of one of the largest global megalopolises. The glowing tomb can be seen for miles at night. Official and military ceremonies take place here on special occasions, such as on the 23rd of March (Pakistan Day), the 14th of August (Independence Day), the 11th of September (the anniversary of Jinnah’s death) and the 25th of December (Jinnah’s birthday). Dignitaries and officials from foreign countries also visit the mausoleum during official tours.
