The monumental tomb of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, is situated on a natural plateau within a 53 hectare park in the city of Karachi. The approach to the mausoleum is a terraced and landscaped avenue emphasized by fifteen successive fountains. This leads to a platform measuring 75x75m and 4m high, with steps on three sides, which forms the base of the mausoleum. The edifice, square in plan with tapering walls, is surmounted by a dome rising to a height of 43m. Four pointed arches open into the mausoleum from each of the four fašades. The interior space is an octagon with a ceremonial sarcophagus in the centre. The actual tomb is located in a subterranean chamber immediately underneath. All exteriors and interiors are finished with marble and the interior of the dome with stucco. The openings above the doorways are lattice work.
