Karachi is locally known as the (City of Lights) & (The bride of the cities) for its spirit, and the (City of the Quaid) , having been the birth and burial place of Quaid-e-Azam (Muhammad Ali Jinnah), the founder of Pakistan, who made the city his abode after Pakistan’s independence from the British Raj on 14 August 1947. Karachi is the largest city, main seaport and the main business hub of Pakistan, as well as the capital of Sindh province. The city is located in the south of the country, along the seashore meeting the Arabian Sea. It is spread over 3,527 km2 in area, almost four times bigger than Hong Kong. It was the original capital of Pakistan until the construction of Islamabad and is the place of the Port of Karachi and Port Bin Qasim, two of the region’s main and busiest ports. After the freedom of Pakistan, the city population enlarged severely when hundreds of thousands of Muhajirs from India and other parts of South Asia came to settle in Karachi.

The city has an estimated population of 13-15 million, while the total city area has a population of over 18 million. Karachi is the most densely inhabited city in the country, one of the world’s biggest cities in terms of inhabitants and also the 10th largest urban agglomeration in the world. Karachi is Pakistan’s leading centre of banking, industry, economic activity, trade and is home to Pakistan’s largest corporations, including those involved in textiles, shipping, automotive industry, entertainment, the arts, fashion, advertising, publishing, software development and medical research. The city is a major hub of higher education in South Asia and the wider Muslim world.

Manora is a small island (2.5 km²) located just south of the Port of Karachi in Pakistan. The island is linked to the main land by a 12 kms long land bridge called the Sandspit. Manora and adjacent islands form a defensive fence linking Karachi harbor to the north and the Arabian Sea to the south. Manora is a well-liked picnic spot for the reason that of the long sandy beaches along the southern boundary of the island, which join into the beaches of the Sandspit and then extend several kilometers to the beaches at Hawke’s bay.
