Shah Faisal Town (Sindhi: ? Urdu: ? ? ‎) is a small, densely populated town in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. It is named after the late King Faisal of Saudi Arabia. The town is bordered by Malir Town to the northeast, Bin Qasim Town to the east, Korangi Town and Landhi Town to the south, and Faisal Cantonment and Malir Cantonment to the west and northwest. The Malir River forms the southern boundary of the town and the Shahrah-e-Faisal highway forms much of the northern boundary with the Jinnah International Airport at the northern end of the town.

Muhajirs form the majority in the town, followed by Punjabi, Sindhi, Balochi and Pakhtoons.

History

The federal government introduced local government reforms in 2000, which eliminated the previous third tier of government (administrative divisions) and raised the fourth tier (districts) to become the new third tier. The effect in Karachi was the dissolution of the former Karachi Division and the merger of its five districts to form a new Karachi City-District with eighteen autonomous constituent towns including Shah Faisal Town.

Neighbourhoods

Shah Faisal Town has twenty-one densely populated neighborhoods:

Wireless Gate

The Wireless Gate serves as a major entrance way to Shah Faisal Town. The name is derived from the abundance of telecommunication installations (PTA) and offices in the area. The area hosted a radio station until the early 1980s.
