Saidpur Village, Islamabad

3.5
Visit Saidpur Village on the slopes of the Margalla hills to experience a site influenced by three cultures, as Muslims, Hindus, and Sikhs used to live here together. Once a garden resort, Hindu commander Raja Man Singh converted the area into a place of Hindu worship, with the village still boasting preserved temples and ponds that represent a microcosm of Hindu civilization. In 2008, France assisted in renovating the village, turning it into a tourist destination with facilities to support longer holidays, not just one-day visits. Find local accommodations, visit art galleries and antique showrooms, and acquaint yourself with the village's folklore, heritage, and cuisine.

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.
