Karachi Landmarks – M.A. Jinnah Building

Left for Eating Dust. Penalized for not serving economic interests anymore. Losing its good old neighbors one by one. MA Jinnah building may have outlived others but as crippled, helpless, disfigured old sage. It has seen glory days of Elphinstone Street when it was pride of Karachi. Still the street attracts millions each day but hardly anyone would take his guests to show them around which was first on such agenda even in 60s.

The facade of building has survived albeit losing everything additional. The ground floor has survived but not without losing its essence as every shopkeeper has transformed their portion the way they want.
