One of the most urbanized and cosmopolitan cities of Pakistan is the capital city, Islamabad. Build by design in the 60’s to take over the
role as capital from Karachi, it is one of the most remarkable places in Pakistan as it took the experience of modern city planning as well as the favourable
climatic conditions under consideration. Due to its establishment as the capital of Pakistan it quickly became a political and cultural hub in Pakistan
though it never reached to the buzzing life of Karachi or Lahore. However, today it is considered one of the most liveable cities in Pakistan which also
is reflected by its quiet- and calmness as well as its green appearance. It is home to over 1 Million people today that are predominantly employed within
the federal government, international institutions and organisations as well as businesses. While the city is busy at day, it is remarkably quite at night
as people live in the twin city Rawalpindi. Another buzzing hub in the area. Islamabad is also home to multiple diplomatic missions, the diplomatic enclave
as well as the parliament of Pakistan playing an important role in the development of Pakistan’s beautiful north.
Islamabad is a unique blend of incredible infrastructure and picturesque natural wonders. The breath-taking mountains surrounding the city are a treat for the eyes.
The luscious green scenery makes the city unforgettable. The city has wide streets adorned by tall green trees. It is divided in various zones and sectors thus
making it both stunning and conveniently accessible.
The location of the city makes it the perfect base for people travelling further up north. Moreover, the Margalla Hills are right in the backyard of the city. The
biggest mosque of the country is the Faysal Mosque. The mosque is at the foothills of the Margalla hills, right in the heart of the city. It has an enthralling
beauty. Against the backdrop of scenic mountains it has white pillars and expansive open spaces. The mosque can accommodate upto 300,000 worshippers at a time
and is a perfect reminder to the cultural and diplomatic importance religion is playing in Pakistan. Today it is home to a wide flock of people from all over
the planet embracing their life in one of the most beautiful capitals there is.
