Located diagonally opposite the Sind High Court Building, this imposing structure was built in the year 1942 and serves as a meeting place for the elected members of the provincial parliament. It is simple and straight forward in its architectural design and shows influences of the colonial style. After independence the constituent assembly of Pakistan met in this building. The Quaid-e-Azam was speaker of this constituent assembly. An objective resolution moved by Shaheed-e-Millat Liaquat Ali Khan was passed in this building. It was here that the National Standard was also presented and approved by the constituent assembly. The constitutions of 1954 and 1956 were adopted here before the capital was shifted to Islamabad, three years later.

The Sindh Assembly building completed its 83rd years of existence today. On March 11, 1940, Sir Lancelot Graham, the Governor of Sindh at the time, laid the foundation stone of this momentous institution which was constructed over the course of two years and inaugurated on March 4, 1943, by former governor Sir Hugh Dow. Since then this historic structure has witnessed several key moments in Pakistan’s history.
