SITE Town (Sindhi: سائٽ ٽائون, Urdu: سائٹ ٹاؤن) is a town in western part of Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan and is named after the Sindh Industrial and Trading Estate (SITE) area, which forms the heart of the town and is home to people of nearly all communities of Pakistan.[1] The town is bordered by Gadap Town to the north, Liaquatabad and North Nazimabad to the east across the Orangi Nala stream, Lyari and Saddar to the south across the Lyari River and Kiamari to the west. Also neighbouring the town are Baldia and Orangi to the northwest.


The Sindh Industrial & Trading Estate was established in 1947 and has grown into the largest industrial area in Pakistan with more than 2,000 industrial units on 4,500 acres (18 km2) of land west of the Lyari River. The estate benefits from the proximity of the Port of Karachi and various roads linking to the rest of Pakistan. The town grew up as worker colonies were established around the industrial estate.

The father of nation Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah came here in this area in July 1948 and attended the opening ceremony of Valika Textile Mills, the first textile mill of Pakistan. Moreover, the Valika family also established many hospitals and schools, the most notable being Valika Hospital. Soon after, under the leadership of Fakhruddin Valika, the Valikas grew and established their empire of industries which continued to flourish during the Ayubian Era.

The federal government introduced local government reforms in the year 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 SITE Town.
