Located in the center of the city lies the Quaid-e-Azam House Museum, also known as Flag Staff House, and a significant National Monument. The museum is located in a house where Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Pakistan's founding father, formerly lived in. This beautiful Yellowstone double-story structure stands at the corner of Shahrah-e-Faisal Road and Fatima Jinnah Road. The Quid-i-Azam bought the house from the former Mayor of Karachi, Mr. Sorab Kavasji Katrak, on August 14th, 1943. This structure is one of the fascinating historical sites in Karachi. The Quaid-e-Azam House Museum is a large mansion with several distinct sections, including the main structure (which has central air conditioning), an outbuilding, an annex, a library, and a lovely garden filled with flourishing plants. It is a grand home whose spacious lawn measures 10,241 square yards. Things to look at in Quaid-e-Azam House Museum

- Admire the yellow stones with which the building was constructed. The sun shines brightly on the building's yellow stones from the colonial era, while in front, a Pakistani flag waves in the breeze. - The main entrance has stunning limestone masonry and welcoming arches for visitors. - The crockery room is full of ornamental crockery that spells grandeur. - Jinnah's bedroom still exhibits a document chest, a cigar box, and some family memorabilia to look at. - The drawing room has a showcase that features several showpieces. These were gold-plated gifts to Jinnah gifted by officials from China to Japan. - Bombay businessman Rafique Motiwala presented Jinnah with a map of Pakistan constructed entirely of shards of glass, which I proudly display on a wall at his office. A vintage American government-issued telephone set stands on a shelf next to a figurine of a German Shepherd dog. This room features a pencil drawing of Fatima Jinnah by artist Sarah Ikhlaq from 1963. - There are servant quarters and a horse barn here which has been converted into a hall for guests. - The massive garden has been renovated multiple times while the trees have remained untouched. You can seek solace and fresh air in these gardens while leisurely strolling. - You can also check out a tile on the roof with the date 1868 embossed on it, the year the house was constructed.
