|Location||Fatima Jinnah Road, Karachi|
|Archdiocese||Diocese of Karachi|
Established in 1844 and built in 1855, Holy Trinity Cathedral was designed by Captain John Hill of the Bombay Engineers and built from local, buff-colored Gizri stone as the first major church in Karachi. Its original tall tower was built to serve as a light house for ships arriving at Karachi Harbour but two stories of the tower were removed for safety in 1905. The original pitched roof was replaced by a barrel vaulted roof in the 1970s. As a former garrison church for the British military, the church has a number of plaques memorializing British servicemen and history.
