The capital city of Pakistan, Islamabad lies in the northwest of the country on Potohar Plateau. This area has been significant in history for being a part of the crossroads of the Rawalpindi and the North West Frontier Province. The city was built in 1960 to replace Karachi as the Pakistani capital, which it has been since 1963. Due to Islamabad’s proximity to Rawalpindi, people call them twin cities.
To the north of the city you will find the Margalla Hills. Hot summers, monsoon rains and cold winters. With sparse snowfall in the hills almost summarize the climate of this area. Islamabad also has a rich wildlife ranging from wild boars to leopards.
After the formation of Pakistan in 1947, it was felt that a new and permanent Capital City needs to be built to show the diversity of the Pakistani nation. So Islamabad was made the Capital.
Pakistan monument, Shakarparian, Daman-e-koh, Lok Virsa and Saidpur village are some common tourist attractions of Islamabad.
