Karachi has a number of beautiful old churches and cathedrals.

The St. Patrick's Cathedral:










The Chapel at the St. Joseph's Convent School:



The St. Joseph's Convent Girls College:



The Trinity Church Karachi whose bell tower used to function as a lighthouse in the early days of Karachi (two upper storeys of the tower were later removed due to foundation weaknesses):





The St. Andrews Church in Saddar:

Almost all church buildings I have seen up till now have been a beauty. I have also noticed that for almost every church ,the style of architecture used is Gothic. Gothic is indeed one of the most beautiful architectural styles in the world. More beautiful than classical Greek/Roman architecture in my opinion.
Truly a majestic style of architecture.
