Saddar, the central business district of Karachi, is a bustling town home to the famous Empress Market and Karachi's central bus station. Comprising the old parts of the city, its neighbourhoods represent the pre-colonial history of Karachi.

Saddar was the centre of Karachi during the colonial era where many relics of Pakistan's architectural heritage can still be found today. The city's largest mobile phone market can also be found in Saddar, as well as the famous Zaibunnisa Street, dubbed one of the city's most busiest streets.

Here we look at 20 pictures of Karachi's Saddar.

Last Man Alive | 5 years ago | Reply Saddar used to be a living marvel. However the sindhi corruption and crimes raj that treats Karachi like its occupied colony and the descent of tribal mountain people on Karachi in infinite droves have also destroyed Saddar like the rest of Karachi.
