rather small museum but highly professional arranged with proper airconditioning and the building itself is an artifact of the museum

Built in the early 1900s. Beautiful architecture. It was originally as a residence but now houses an art gallery and museum. Cameras are not allowed inside the palace only in the grounds. Entrance fees payable, yes a higher rate for foreigners.

Located in Clifton Karachi, Pakistan. A Hindu Marwari businessman built it in 1927 for his summer home of Mohatta, from what is now the modern-day Indian state of Rajasthan.

The entry fee is very minimal and there is a museum inside in this to see the history. A must-do thing when you are in Karachi.

Beautifully serene palace away from the craziness of the city this old palace is a great place for an hour. It’s only 30 rupees for entry and the museum inside is great showcasing different exhibitions from around Pakistan.

Note that cameras & phones cannot be taken into the exhibitions. Take the time to sit in the garden for a while before leaving.

Mohatta Palace takes you back to a royal time. We toured the palace and it was a great historical experience. Exhibits change every so often. There is a small gift shop inside as well! We also attended a private musical event (pre-Covid). The site is very well maintained.

this place is about a 100 yards away from my grandparent’s house which still is in possession of my family. I spent time here as a toddler and came back after decades of absence with my youngest child. For Pakistan this is a historically relevant building since it was inhabited by Mohammed Jinnah’ s sister who at some point also must have been present here. It was also later the location of the foreign office of Pakistan. For all visitors of Karachi it is a worthwhile visit since it is quite well kept and surrounded by well maintained gardens. The museum offers portraits of Karachi socialites from the higher echelons. The whole exhibition can be handled in 30 minutes after which you can either walk and rest in the garden or as in our case, just walk back home and relax.

The Mohatta Palace is a jewel in Pakistan’s heritage which has been extensively remodelled. It tells the story of the civilisations prior to the formation of the state of Pakistan, and there are guides who will regale you with the relevance of all of the historical sites amalgamated here. Nice peaceful place with loads of history but not up to the standard of many a museum elsewhere in the world.
