Chakiwara (Urdu: چاکیواڑا ‎) is one of the neighbourhoods of Lyari Town in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. The area gets its name from the Chakee, a community of Gujarati Muslims.[1]

Chakiwara derives its name as the district is home mainly to the Chakee, and other Gujarati Muslims such as the Ghanchi, Chhipa and Memon. There are also small groups of Muhajirs, Pakhtuns and Balochis.
