    If we compare 1838 Map of Karachi Popoluation and 1838 Kurrachee Harbour Map. I guess Kurrachee is the most Autnetic name of the city in tose years.

    Is the 1838 population Map genuine?

  7. Karachi served as the capital of Pakistan until 1960, when it was replaced by Islamabad. The Pakistani government believed the relocation of the capital would help spur development in the northern parts of the country. The map detail below, from a 1959 Army Map Service depiction, scaled at 1:250,000, shows the Karachi region in its final year as the national capital. Since this time, Karachi s population has boomed from about 2 million people in 1961 (in Karachi proper) to almost 15 million people today.
