  • Pakistan monument is made of 4 petals representing 4 provinces of Pakistan. Important and historical places are portrait on these petals. The best thing is "the hand prints". Each and every person's hand print who worked in the making of this monument, is placed on the side walls of stairs going up to the petals. Reason for the hand prints is recognition to their efforts whose collective strength and sweat made up this monument. It means that we "all of Pakistan" is very grateful and pay a great tribute to all the lives that were lost in making of Pakistan. The monument is placed right besides the "zero point" of Islamabad. The very place where the general Ayub khan inaugurated Islamabad the planned city and capital of Pakistan.
