Where In Karachi # 77

It might be easy to guess the place I captured, but guessing where I am standing while taking this shot is a bit tricky.

    Yeah This place is not really a popular one. I guess I should give off a clue.
    The place is really Near to Minto Chorangi (http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/2006/03/minto_roundabou.phtml ).

    Saqib you are close but not close enough… This place is not really popular, many don’t even know it exists.

    You’re probably standing on what we friends called kidney hill (coz it’s shaped like a kidney). We used to jog to the place during our childhood summers, and enjoy the view during sunrise, coming back to Dhoraji for some great halwa puri and lassi. In the view the tall buildings are obviously on Shara-e-Faisal, with the large Jamaat-Khaana under the left billboard in the distance giving away its location near the flyover quite easily (yes, you have to zoom in).

    The place is known for harboring some chursi mawali with wild dogs to add to the entertainment. There’s a small rocky climb there with thorny bushes at the bottom that we used to challenge ourselves to climb up against.

    Still the best place for an early-morning adventure if you’re young enough and live near by.

    Yep, you guessed it right!! That is Kidney Hill where I am standing!

    BTW there is also a shrine on the top, and yes there used to be some chursi mawalis there but I think they are not any more.
