Karachi, November 12, 2014 (PPI-OT): Sindh Governor Dr Ishrat Ul Ebad Khan has said the share of Karachi in Pakistan’s tourist market is minimal despite the fact that it has a rich history supported by artisans, craftsman, musicians and historical buildings.
Addressing the groundbreaking ceremony of Eduljee Dinshaw Road project on Tuesday, he said it would help the city’s downtown restore some of its lost glory and showcase the two important buildings. He said this public-private partnership project was the first of its kind in Pakistan for the restoration of a public space.
The Customs House took the lead in restoring the road coupled with two architectural masterpieces of the city — Karachi Port Trust building and the Imperial Custom House. Dr Ebad said this project would not only create a visitor-friendly area but would also enable the residents of the area a decent place to spend quality time during the evenings.
The restoration of old temple on Eduljee Dinshaw Road is also part of this project. The next phase includes cleaning up the area and introduction of eateries as well as starting arts and crafts and sports activities with the support of the Karachi Port Trust. This would help generate employment and encourage artisans, sculptors, musicians and painters to showcase their skills.
