Bahadurabad (Urdu: بہادرآباد‎) is one of the neighbourhoods of Gulshan Town, Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. It is located in the Civic Centre zone in the Gulshan Town. The neighbourhood was originally inhabited by mainly middle class Hyderabadi Muslim refugees from Hyderabad Deccan (now Hyderabad, Telangana, India) who migrated after the creation of Pakistan in 1947 after Hyderabad became the part of India.[1]

Bahadurabad is named after Bahadur Yar Jang, a Muslim nationalist from Hyderabad Deccan.[2] In 2007, a replica of the famous Charminar monument of Hyderabad, India was constructed on the main crossing of Bahadurabad.[3]
