  • A must see place if you visiting Islamabad. I just love it's museum. It captures important historical events of the Sub-continent. Very well kept.
  • Pakistan monument is a beautiful location which must be visited especially in good weather. Goos architecture, pretty scenery. The adjoining museum is also worth a visit although many of its sections are now closing perhaps due to lesser funds and administrative inefficiencies. Nearby lok virsa museum and shops also worth a visit.
  • This is the historical place. In this place complete historey of pakistan available. And you can see the complete view of islamabad. I love this place so i give it 5.
