A national heritage museum, Pakistan monument serves as a perfect spot for sightseeing and learning about Pakistan's history. See the masterpiece of celebrated architect Arif Masoud, boasting richly decorated murals depicting scenes from the past. Designed in the shape of a blooming flower, and as a star and a crescent moon from a bird's eye view, the site symbolizes the country's rapid progress and development. After dark, the lights in the evenings make the monument look magical.

The Pakistan Monument is a national monument and heritage museum located on the western Shakarparian Hills in Islamabad, Pakistan. The monument was constructed to symbolize the unity of the Pakistani people. It is dedicated to the people of Pakistan who sacrificed their "today" for a better "tomorrow". Its elevation makes the monument visible from across the Islamabad-Rawalpindi metropolitan area and is a popular tourist destination.Adjoining the monument is the Pakistan Monument Museum, which includes a wax museum depicting important events leading to the Pakistan Movement. Which close in evening early to get in the museum visitors have to reach early before evening. Furthermore, the facilities includes a reference library, audio-visual archive, conference hall along with a 62-seat capacity auditorium known as Panorama Hall. From air the monument looks like a star (center) and a crescent moon (formed by walls forming the petals), these represent the star and crescent on Pakistan's flag.Well made monument with secure footings all round, well improved from my last visit 20+ years ago, the museum is a great addition.
Good place to visit. There are beautiful scenes of Islamabad at this place. People enjoy visiting this place. They also enjoy taking some shots on their mobiles and cameras. Often there are crowds of people visiting this place. It is one of the most visited places of the capital Islamabad.
