Description

The Mohatta Palace was built in the late 1920's by Hindu businessman Shivratan Chandraratan Mohatta as his summer home. It then became home to Fatima Jinnah, the sister of the Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Built in the style of stone palaces in Rajasthan, the exterior of Mohatta Palace is a mix of locally available yellow Gizri and pink stone from Jodhpur, and is trimmed with exquisite railings, domes, motifs, windows, stone brackets and spandrels, and is spread across 18,500 square feet. The palace is now being used as a museum featuring centuries old collections of English statues, relics, ceramic art, memorabilia of British reign in Pakistan, the early history of Sindh, displays on the city of Karachi and more. The garden outside is beautiful and offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Prayer Facilities

Although finding prayer facilities at the Mohatta Palace Museum will not be possible, Muslim tourists will most certainly be able to find plenty of mosques in the city of Karachi, such as Masjid e Tooba, Aram Bagh Masjid and Makki Masjid. Muslims visiting the museum will also be able to offer their prayers outdoors in the palace’s garden, if able to find a quiet and clean place.

Halal Food

The Mohatta Palace Museum does not house a café. Visitors to the museum will therefore have to visit one of the many restaurants and food stalls in the surrounding area. Muslim visitors will be able to dine at any food outlet in Karachi, as all of them are sure to be Halal. Those visiting the museum can therefore ask staff at the attraction to guide them to the best restaurant nearby.
