Memon Masjid

(4 votes, average 4.00 out of 5)

ImageThis is a very old Mosque, built before the Partition of India. It is one of the landmark mosques of Karachi. Its minarets are different in shape and style, and its dome is impressively large and well crafted. A must-visit if you are inspired by Islamic and/or Muslim architecture. Being a mosque, entrance is free, but foreigners, especially women, may find it difficult to get past the mosque caretakers and security personnel. Make sure you are properly covered (long-sleeved shirts, and legs covered to the ankles, and a scarf to completely cover the hair) before you enter the mosque. Photography of any sort is prohibited inside the mosque. Additional tips are: keep your voice low and do not laugh out loud, avoid questioning the local people unless its really important, and do not commit anything that may be considered rude or offensive.
