The Churches, Temples, and Shrines of Karachi

This study was initiated by Arif Hasan in 1987 and was carried out until 2010. The research work was conducted by Architect Aqsa Mumtaz. She was assisted by an engineer, Abdul Hakim, from Arif Hasan’s office. Subsequently, the study was added to and edited by Architect Nurjehan Marwat Khan. The final editing and formatting has been done by Hamza Arif.

Literature consulted for the study includes Muhammad Usman Damohi’s ‘Karachi in the Mirror of History’, A.A. Brohi’s ‘Tombs can Speak’, a text of the Tazkira-e-Auliya genre, and Tohfat-ul-Karam by Mir Ali Sher Qania.

The text also includes information gathered from discussions with the caretakers of the Churches and Temples. The section on Shrines borrows heavily from the work of Muhammad Usman Damohi.
