They say that Karachi never sleeps. Because of its night life, Karachi has come to be known as the ‘city of lights’. The financial capital of Pakistan, which has the sea, started off as a fishing town two centuries ago. And it remained the capital of Pakistan from the partition of India till 1960. Its culture is breathtakingly diverse. It is antique in vibes but modernity runs through its veins. The city’s architectural heritage transcends the grimy old Karachi to the one that is picturesque, all tied in harmony.
