ashiq lallan house 

This beautiful architectural edifice according to its owners dates back to approximately 200 years. It lies on Ali Akbar lane, which is perpendicular to Rampart Road, adjacent to a mosque. As the name suggests, this purely residential building is owned by Ashiqali S Lalan, and was inhabited by his children. This G+2 building immediately holds the observer’s eye from its main access at the street end. It is a beautiful blend of yellow stone with wooden Jefferies on the main façade. Ali Akbar lane, being a residential lane, is extremely narrow and widens towards its extreme end. There is obvious religious dominance in the area with two mazaars and a mosque in the immediate vicinity of the building. One of the mazaars is directly adjacent to it.Lalan house is situated near where Muhammad Ali Jinnah was born. Where all the elders of the family and the lalan family lived nearby with close ties to one another and with extensive interaction, this can be seen when Muhammad Ali Jinnah was leaving for England his family borrowed money from the Lalan’s.  The historical importance can further be seen by, when he came to Karachi he was entertained in lalan house multiple times. So this makes lalan house a part of Pakistan’s national history. Lalan house neighborhood and this particular family were active practitioners of Shia rights. Now after this house is going to be saved will have the ground floor become the small-scale museum to show window to asna ashri twelwers. The architectural layout is reflective of historic houses of Thatta of late mid evil period. It is known to be the last of its kind. The material used is totally indigenous and traditional wood frame and mud has been used.
