Pakistani Culture- The One of Its Kind

Updated on April 3, 2015

Shalimar Gardens in Lahore

Have you ever imagined how do ancient traditions breathe for ages? How do traditions and cultures prevail through merciless and smoky haze of wars? How do values, moralities and art live on against misery and bloodshed when all else is lost? Why do huge monuments stand their ground when the foundations grow unstable? Hovering over cities... Ridiculing and mocking humans and their silly wars altogether?

These monuments stand tall just because the strength which inspires them is stronger than any that maintains usual human form. It’s timeless, ageless something that the hands of time cannot contain. In hostile war affected regions, superior towers and minarets provide the only sense of stability… They stand undisturbed even when everything crumbles.

Pakistan… a land of antique memories. Mughal traditions, Gandhara customs, rustic gorgeousness… standing tall in its architectural magnificence. Despite the bloodshed on its soil, despite the massacre the land has seen, one can feel the tenderness from its red bricked Palaces and Mosques. Even the rigid hearted people can see the life emanating from them. These splendid monuments and buildings are slave to no one, not to any man nor to any religion. They are lonely keepers of peace in cities, noiselessly standing tall and looking on with their age-old wisdom.

Those pictures above are not only stunning but have a history and many stories to tell, that's what makes them more attractive. The images are beautiful and Pakistan is a beautiful country with so much to offer despite of what is happening the wars and all the crisis.
