PAKISTAN: An Embodiment Of Beauty And Rich Culture

Updated on July 8, 2014

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is a great Islamic country lying at the crossroads of trade and strategically important in South Asia. It is known for richness of historical heritage in culture, architecture and beautiful blend of ancient and modern civilization. Its enchanting valleys, majestic mountain peaks, long stretched beaches, trout rich rivers, busy cities and trading centers leave a long lasting and pleasant impression on the minds of the tourists.

Administratively, Pakistan is divided into five provinces: Punjab, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Baluchistan and Gilgit Baltistan.

The great mountain ranges of Hindu Kush extend along the Northern regions. It has common boundaries with India in the East, China in the North and Afghanistan and Iran in the West. To the South lies the Arabian Sea. It is also the land of five rivers. The Indus River is one of the longest and mightiest rivers of the world. Its tributaries (Jhelum, Chinab, Ravi and Sutlej) are the main source of irrigation in Pakistan. It has one of the largest irrigation systems in the world. This irrigation system has a network of canals, which carry water to the fertile agricultural fields of Pakistan. Pakistan is the third largest wheat producing country in the world. Other crops grown by its hardworking and devoted farmers are cotton, rice, fruits and sugar cane. It is also rich in mineral resources. Its major industrial products are textile and carpets.

The discoveries of the remains of some of the ancient civilizations at Moen-Jo-Daro, Harappa and Taxila reveal the rich cultural heritage and civilization of this region. Its archaic monuments and modern buildings speak of its rich architecture and culture. Badshahi Mosque, Lahore Fort, Shalimar Garden and many ancient buildings throughout Pakistan remind us of the great Muslim Mughal rulers who took this land to the peaks of progress and prosperity. The buildings like Faisal Mosque in Islamabad, Tomb of Quaid-e-Azam, Habib Bank Plaza in Karachi and some other prominent buildings are the embodiment of its richness in modern architecture.
