Description

Visitors to Karachi are sure to come across the beautiful Masjid-e-Tooba or the Tooba Mosque. Locally known as the Gol Masjid, this mosque was designed by Pakistani architect Dr Babar Hamid Chauhan and built in 1969, in the Defence Housing Society, just off main Korangi Road. Often claimed to be the largest single dome mosque in the world, Masjid-e-Tooba is one of the top tourist attractions in Karachi. Built with pure white marble, the mosque features a dome that is 72 metres in diameter which is balanced with no central pillars on a low surrounding wall. This mesmerizing mosque also has a 70 metre high minaret and its central prayer hall can accommodate up to 5,000 people. Outside this stunning mosque there is a terrace that is also used for prayers, ablution facilities, and decorative water fountains.
