Welcome to Rawalpindi, the fourth most populous city in Pakistan and a hub for tourists visiting the Rohtas Fort, Azad Kashmir, Taxila, and Gilgit-Baltistan. Located in the Punjab province, Rawalpindi is a city steeped in history, with ancient Hindu and Buddhist heritage in the neighbouring town of Taxila, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Originally a small town of less importance, Rawalpindi grew in significance after being conquered by the British Raj in 1849, becoming the largest garrison town of the British Indian Army’s Northern command. Today, it serves as the headquarters of the Pakistan Army and is a major logistics and transportation centre for northern Pakistan. As home to historic havelis and temples, Rawalpindi is a must-visit for history buffs, while its suburban housing developments serve as bedroom-communities for workers in Islamabad. Experience the intersection of history and modernity in Rawalpindi, where ancient ruins meet contemporary culture.
