Often visited this historic building in college years and later recently over the past three years! Was always fascinated by the architecture and the parks surrounding it. I have taken many photographs here. Happy that its more accessible now.

Visited Frere Hall on Eat Festival in 2017, beautiful architecture and well maintained lawns. The spacious place had been well utilized for setting up stalls and space for eating. My kids enjoyed the trip and looked up info as well after returning.

Never expected to see such a site in Karachi, for that right in the heart of the city. Looked more like a church along with all the statues displayed outside. very artistic and beautiful. Worth going for a visit if one appreciated architecture

Visited Frere Hall which is a lovely building which pays host to some lovely art work, a nice spot to visit with family. Unfortunately it seemed obvious that the building isn't receiving sufficient funding and is suffering from neglect.
