When it comes to travel we
always choose places that are good, where the scenic landscapes are so beautiful
that they take our breath away, where a new culture embraces us and where we
feel that nothing is as beautiful as this planet. Normally, we choose places
which are already on top of the list and where most of the world goes for
enjoyment, but what about the places which are neglected and never visited.
There are many places on earth which have never received their share of
recognition and respect inspite of the fact that they have some of the best
architecture, landscapes, food and tradition. One such place is Pakistan.
Islamic Republic of Pakistan or Pakistan is just next to India and is bordered
by Afghanistan and Iran on the north western side. Though, once it was a part of
India, Pakistan received its independence in 1947 and since than the country has
been suffering from political instability and military rule, but there are
places here that are really worth watching and which stand for the service of
humanity. If you are in Islamabad than you will come across some of the best
Islamic cuisine and landmarks that have stood the test of time and one of them
is National Monument of Pakistan which is located at the west of Shakar Parian
Hills. The blossoming flower petal design of the monument stands for the unity
and bravery in the people of Pakistan. The capital city of Pakistan has many
more sightseeings and locations which are really beautiful and you can enjoy the
best Pakistani cuisines here in the city. You can even visit the twin city of
Islamabad which is better known as Rawalpindi.
Not very far from Islamabad is the city of Lahore which is known as the Garden
of Mughals. If you look around the city you will find that Mughal heritage is
still alive in all the architecture and monuments here. If you love strolling in
gardens, than you will love some of the most exotic gardens in the world here in
Lahore better known as the Shalimar Gardens and Sukh Chayn. Lahore is also an
educational centre of Pakistan and therefore you will find some of the best
universities here in Lahore. The Badshahi Mosque and Minar-e-Pakistan are some
landmarks that you should not miss when you are in Lahore because they not only
look majestic but they also hold historical significance.
Towards the south, you can take a quick break in the city of Hyderabad which was
once the capital city of Sindh and is one of the oldest cities in South Asia.
Formerly known as Neroon Kot, the city got its new name from the British after
they won over it in 1843. However, the city still has the monuments of Kalhora
and Tulpar rulers and famous for embroidery bracelets, bangles and colorful
Last but not the least on the list should be Karachi because here you will have
to spend a lot of time as Karachi is packed with a lot of places that you should
checkout. Places like Wazir Mansion, Quaid-E-Azam Mausoleum, Liaquat Hall, Burns
Gardens, Empress Market, Clifton Beach, and Mereweather Tower are really worth
the trip to Pakistan.
