Islamabad and Rawalpindi

Islamabad is the Capital of Pakistan. Islamabad and Rawalpindi are known as Twin cities. Rawalpindi is an old city with a lot of old buildings, British rule schools, Railway Stations but Islamabad is the new city which is attracted by tourist because of its greenery, Hills, Up to date shopping malls but the main attraction of visitors is Faisal Masjid, Daman-e-Koh and Pakistan Monument. Islamabad has red zone area where President and Prime Minister of Pakistan resides, Supreme Court, Parliament of Pakistan, Embassies of foreign countries, Pakistan Secretariat and National Library of Pakistan is located. Best ranked universities are there in Islamabad so many students daily commute for their studies. These two cities may sound different but one thing that joins them is Hospitality and Food. In Rawalpindi, Raja Bazaar and Chandani Chock are hubs for shopping and street food. When I talk about shopping how I forget about Tench Bhatta Bazaar that is Asia's longest bazaar. Its haven for the locals for shopping. This bazaar is full of variety. From expensive shops to the middle to lowest price shops. Everyone can shop from there. Rawalpindi is very important for Armed Forces of Pakistan because GHQ (General Headquarters) is in Rawalpindi. Whenever someone visits Rawalpindi they also visit Islamabad and vice versa. In short words, I conclude Islamabad and Rawalpindi are moving from Ethnicity and History to Modern Era.
