The Tomb of Abdullah Shah Ghazi, is located at perched on a hilltop overlooking Clifton Beach, Karachi, Pakistan. The mazar (tomb) is built on a very high platform with the grave being downstairs. The tomb has a tall and square chamber and a 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.[citation needed]

Syed Abdullah Shah Ghazi 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.

On 7 October 2010, dual suicide bomb blasts at the shrine killed 10 and injured 50.[1] Salafi/Wahabi extremist sympathizers were suspected,[citation needed] given their opposition to Sufiism and opposition to the veneration of mausoleums.
