The Tomb of Abdullah Shah Ghazi, is located at perched on a hilltop overlooking Clifton Beach, Karachi, Pakistan. The tomb is built on a very high platform, but actual grave is downstairs. The tomb has its tall square chamber and green-and-white striped dome, decorated with Sindhi tilework flags and bunting, Abdullah Shah Ghazi's tomb attracts a steady stream of devotees who shuffle forward to caress the silver railing around the burial place and drape it with garlands of flowers.

Syed Abdullah Shah Ghazi (RA) was a ninth-century sufi who claimed direct descent from the Prophet and is thought of by his followers as something like the patron saint of Karachi. People, most of them Muslims, come here to pay homage to him from across the country.
