Frere Hall

Completed in 1863, Frere Hall, located between Abdullah Haroon Road and Fatima Jinnah Road, was originally intended to function as Karachi’s town hall, but now serves as a library and exhibition space. One of the finest architectural endeavors of the early British Colonial era in the city, this iconic structure is also known for the mural that occupies the interior ceiling, painted by the inimitable Sadequain. Along with the mural which remains incomplete after his death in 1987, several of the artist’s works reside in the hall, causing for it to be named Galerie Sadequain.
