    Isn’t this some place in Defense? I think there’s this round about sort of thing when you take a left from the Saudi Embassy where there’s lots of greenery, but I don’t remember seeing a waterfall there…so I don’t know either.

    It’s Qaid-e-Azam park in steel town. That was tough ;) since I only knew the photographer’s name.

    On another note, do take a look at this nice art work “Mourning deaths of Karachi” at http://www.flickr.com/photos/syedaliwasif/497430828/

    nice catch MB!

    love the pic!


  13. Dan (unregistered) on July 31st, 2007 @ 6:00 pm

    The guy is rite. This is PAF Museum lawn. It’s not a huge waterfall to take shower under it. Just about 8 to 10 feet high.


  14. Syed Johny (unregistered) on July 31st, 2007 @ 6:39 pm

    hmm !

    looks like the PAF museum has been upgraded!! If this pic is of PAF i.e.

    but my opinion is that this is of Qaud-a-Azam Park(commonly known as Jheel Park)

    Looks to me like it’s a snap of that billboard on Sharah-e-Faisal that says: “Karachi, City of Waterfalls”!


  16. zee (unregistered) on July 31st, 2007 @ 9:17 pm

    Probably after 200 years, we’ll have a couple more of them :)


  17. Fariha Akhtar (unregistered) on August 1st, 2007 @ 12:09 am

    This seems to be the one near Khayaban-e-Jabal!


  18. MB (unregistered) on August 1st, 2007 @ 12:35 am

    I guess its a good offer considering water problem in city. Guys hurry.


  22. Syed Johny (unregistered) on August 1st, 2007 @ 10:39 am

    @KhiTorPit
    steel town is on national highway, around 20-30 Km (i think so ) from qauidabad, its population is 95% of employees of Pakistan Steel mill, same as Gulshan-e-hadeed phase I and II (i think the III has started too.)
