Islamabad is the Capital of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. The city was built between 1960 - 1970 to replace Karachi as the capital. The idea of the national capital of Islamabad was conceived by President Ayub Khan (1907–1974). Karachi had been the capital because it was Pakistan's commercial center, but it was not considered an appropriate administrative center due to many issues and therefore a planned city became a necessaty.

Before this it was just a small village, a part of which still exists with its mud houses and typical village life. Islamabad is a city of modern architecture. Today Pakistan's new Capital ISLAMABAD nestles against the backdrop of the Margala Hills and offers a very healthy climate, pollution free atmosphere, plenty of water and lush green area that are not part of any other city in Pakistan.

It is a modern and well planned city with green belts, large houses elegant public buildings and well-organised markets and shopping places. The walkways of Islamabad shaded & safe and seperated from the traffic by rows of flame trees. Roses, Jasmines & a broad variety of flowers fill the parks and scenic viewpoints shoe the city to its best advantage.

There are some great examples of modern buildings in Islamabad. The roads are wide and lined with grass & roses. The city is divided into several residential & commercial areas.

1. Blue area
2. Jinnah Super Market
3. Aabpara Market


Islamabad was built on heavily forested land, but due to the growing population of the city, more and more wooded areas are being cut down for land. The city is dominated by trees such as oak, eucalyptus, and banyan and is also home to many annual and perennial plants including feral C.
