Gulistan-e-Johar is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Karachi and has now almost become the defining feature of the city. It is possibly the first place that comes to mind when one thinks of Karachi. Named after the famous historical figure Molana Muhammad Ali Johar Gulistan-e-Johar Karachi literally means'the garden of Johar > . The area is located in the Gulshan-e-Iqbal town in the city while some blocks fall under the Faisal Cantonment Board's administration.
Gulistan Johar Karachi enjoys a comparative advantage over other housing societies with reference to its key location within the city. Gulistan-e-Johar is located within Gulshan-e-Iqbal that is literally known as the heart of the city and is geographically located in its centre. It lies in an area enclosed by the Karachi to Hyderabad Motorway M-9 Lyari Expressway and Shahrah-e-Faisal all of which are possibly the most important routes that traverse the city. Other important routes that go through the locality include Jauhar Chawrangi Road Pehlwan Goth Road University Road Rashid Minhas Road and Suparco Road. Hence the locality is extremely well connected and offers multiple channels for commute and routes for access therefore managing a smooth flow of traffic.
