Share Our Heritage with the World


Campaign for listing the heritage of Sindh

The Endowment Fund Trust for Preservation of the Heritage of Sindh, a trust formed for the preservation of Sindh’s heritage, is organizing a campaign whereby you can tell us of heritage buildings in your locale. Buildings that fall under this category are buildings that have been constructed over 75 years ago. We have launched a map feature on our website where you can tag the heritage sites that you know of, along with a description, coordinates (if possible) and pictures of the building, so that we may build an all-inclusive database of heritage sites all over Sindh. It is as simple as tagging the sites you know on maps on our website, just like you would on Google Maps, and we will credit that entry to you.

Come forward! Help us save our heritage!


Heritage and its value in today’s world

One’s heritage is their identity and tells them where they have come from, what morals, values or traditions they had, how they used to conduct daily life, and also highlights the mistakes that they made that led them to their demise.

Sindh’s heritage shines through in the beautiful heritage buildings that are studded across Sindh. Buildings and monuments, made to astonish their beholder, constructed many decades ago, are now listed and recognized as heritage buildings. These buildings contain magnificent architecture, with natural allowance for ventilation, brilliant woodworks, chandeliers, brickworks, tiles, and many more things, that one can’t find craftsmen to make today.

The heritage of Sindh lies in a state of despair throughout the province, and due to few mischievous ones, it continues to disappear brick by brick. Mother Sindh calls on all of us to help its heritage be restored to its original grandeur.

A people without the knowledge of their past, origin & culture is like a tree without roots.

How can you help?

It’s a 4-step simple process:

  1. Take multiple good snaps of heritage buildings from outside and inside.
  2. Collect information about the site from owners/old records/web/news/magazines.
  3. Gather coordinates for the site, using an app like Map Coordinates for Android, Commander Compass Lite for iOS, or through google maps via the Share Location.
  4. Whatsapp the info and pictures to +92-345-2167546 or e-mail it to us on eft.karachi@hotmail.com with your name, or you can contact through our facebook page.

In case you have photos and information of a heritage site that you once visited, you can repeat the process listed in points 3 and 4 above.
