  • Pakistan monument is a must visit place in Islamabad after Faisal Masjid. Very nice built showing different aspects of Pakistani provinces in the form of flower petals. It's having highly culture enriched museum starting from life before arrival of Muslims in subcontinent and ends after the creation of Pakistan. Recommend everybody to visit this place.
  • An outstanding place with loads of historic information. A must place for kids, it has an amazing view and is well kept in terms of cleanliness and maintenance.
  • You should read about it before you go. This monument represent various regions and cultures of Pakistan. Sitting on a hill, you can see north facing views on this calm city.
  • Loved visiting this place.The unmatched thing in my view is the carving of historical places and heroes of Pakistan inside those 4 domes.
  • Very beautiful and good area. All Islamabad seen from this place. Nice to bring young kids.

Where to stay in Islamabad

Islamabad has plenty of accommodations, particularly hotels and guesthouses, to choose from. Look in Blue Area for the bulk of options. With the streets here so spread-out, wide, tree-lined, and new, the hotels tend to follow suit by being luxurious and spacious, although some exceptions can be found. Taking the form of guesthouses, budget-friendly options in town sit on the side streets, particularly around the College Road and School Road areas.
