Karachi: Chiniot’s Taj Mahal, built by a businessman for his son, has been turned into an orphanage, a library and some people call it a sinister palace.

The Taj Mahal, located in the famous city of Chiniot, Pakistan, is an example of its kind. The building was unique in its architectural style and beauty.


Built on 14 marlas, this beautiful five-storey building is made of 70% wood and the carvings on it amaze the viewers even today.


Sheikh Umar Hayat, a successful Calcutta businessman, reportedly built it for his son in 1935 after emigrating to Pakistan. Her name was Gulzar Hayat. That is why this building is also called Gulzar Manzil.
