History

Karachi was a small port town in the Talpur dynasty in Sindh. The British East India Company conquered Karachi on February 3, 1839 and started developing it as a major port town. The British realised the importance of the city as a military cantonment and rapidly developed its harbour for shipping. The foundations of a city municipal government were laid down and infrastructure development was undertaken. The British colonial government built libraries in Karachi but they were restricted to British colonial officers and their families only. Denso Hall was constructed in 1886 as the first library for the natives of Karachi.[1]

Heritage site

In 2010, it was announced that the Heritage Foundation Pakistan with financial support from Karachi Electric Supply Corporation will restore Denso Hall as a Heritage site.[2]
