Knitted Beliefs

In the neighborhood of Karachi’s Ranchore Lines, there is a small India of diverse people, colors & faith, Narayanpura, a place with a very distinct feel and mesmerizing culture to it. Its the biggest minority compound of Pakistan. It consists of 15,000 people from different religions living with their Muslim neighbours. There are three Hindu Temples, two Christian Churches, and a Sikh Gurdwara.

It was Established in 1924 by a Hindu activist named Narayandas which still exists. It was built for the workers of KMC (Karachi Municipal Corporation) who work in municipal sanitary services, the reason a lot of people refer to Narayan Pura as Bhangi Pada. For centuries, Hindus, Christians, and Sikhs have been living next to each other, celebrating each other’s festival as their own. During Christmas, Holi, and Besakhi, everyone participated in the celebrations regardless of their faith. The neighbourhood has three temples, three churches, and an impressive Gurdwara.
