Saidpur Village, Islamabad

(3.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Islamabad attractions like Saidpur Village can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
