Karachi

Karachi is the capital of the Pakistani province of Sindh. It is the most populous city in Pakistan, sixth most populous city proper in the world and the 8th most populous metropolitan city in the world. Ranked as a beta world city, the city is Pakistan's premier industrial and financial Centre. Located on the Arabian Sea, Karachi is also known as the "City of Lights" and "The Bride of the Cities." The 2017 population for the city is estimated to be 16.62 million. In 2017, Karachi has an estimated population of more than 16 million people, which makes it the 7th largest urban agglomeration and the largest city in the Muslim world.

Karachi has grown rapidly in the last few decades and the metropolitan area has more than 23 million people, with a population density of over 24,000 people per square kilometer, or 63,000 per square mile. This means Karachi is by far more dense than any other "megacity" with an urban population of more than 10 million except Dhaka, Bangladesh and Mumbai. This makes Karachi the largest city in Pakistan. Karachi was previously the capital of Pakistan until Islamabad was constructed.

Karachi was founded by Baloch tribes from Makran and Balochistan as Kolachi as a small fishing community. Many descendants of this original population still live on the island of Abdullah Goth, near Karachi port. This village became a settlement called Kolachi-jo-Goth, which was trading across the Arabian Sea by the early 18th century. A fort was constructed with two gateways leading to the sea and the Lyari River.

After missions to the area, the British East India Company captured Karachi in 1839 and the town was annexed to British India in 1843 by Major General Charles James Napier. Karachi was then made the capital of Sindh and the British developed its harbor for shipping produce. New businesses began to open and the town began growing in population.

When the military cantonment was created, it became a "white" town and natives had limited access. The "native" town to the northwest was made larger to accommodate a growing mercantile population. The city was eventually connected to the rest of British India by rail in 1878 and public buildings were constructed. By 1880, the population was mostly comprised of indigenous Balochis and Sindhis. This development also led to many migrants to the city, including Arabs, Jews, Christians, Hindus, Parsis, Goan Christian, Chinese, Marathis and Gujaratis, with a population that hit 105,000 by the end of the 19th century.

By the time of Pakistan's independence in 1947, the city was a metropolis with just under one million people. It became the capital of Pakistan for about a decade.

The Port of Karachi is one of South Asia's largest and busiest deep-water seaports, handling about 60% of the nation's cargo (25 million tons per annum) located in Karachi, Pakistan.
