"Now open" Frere Hall Tip by tytellis

Frere Hall, Karachi: 14 reviews and 17 photos

Frere Hall boasts some lovely 1800s architecture and history. The building is now a museum but was off limits as the US consulate was across the road. Just next to Frere Hall is the house owned by Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, he never lived there and his sister Fatima Jinnah lived there. The house is a museum and bears many artifacts of Jinnah.

Frere Hall and the Jinnah museum are all a stone's throw away from the Avari and across the road is the Marriot Hotel and nearby is the Sheraton and PC hotels.

The gardens around Frere Hall are very lovely and in a walk around the grounds you can see a monument to British soldiers who fought and died in India and abroad.

There is also a book market on weekends for book lovers

Address: near Avari hotel
Directions: near Saddar off Sh e Faisal, near Hotel Metropole
