  • The Pakistan Monument (Urdu: یادبود پاکستان‎) 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
  • Sitting atop Shakerparian Hills, it's a place worth going to for panoramic views of the capital. With nominal fee and ample parking, its a good place for a day out. It has a history museum attached to it which is an added bonus.
