Sindhi built Heritage Buildings in Karachi


A large number of important historical buildings built by local merchant classes Sindhi Hindus at the time of the British rule are located in different areas of Saddar Town.

The buildings of Radio Pakistan, Richmand Crawford Veterinary Hospital, Mama Parsi School, Denso Hall and Khaliqdina Hall are a few of these wonderful historical structures.

Sindh Culture Department, the official custodian of these buildings, has so far declared 600 historical buildings as protected heritage sites under the Sindh Cultural Heritage Protection Act 1972;

however, nothing has been done for the preservation of these buildings.

Many of these buildings are now hidden behind modern plazas and in the absence of proper renovation on the verge of collapsing.Heritage lovers demand the restoration, renovation and preservation of these national assets
