The Pakistan Monument in Islamabad, Pakistan, is a national monument representing the nation’s four provinces and three territories. After a competition among many renowned architects, Arif Masood’s plan was selected for the final design.

The blooming flower shape of the monument represents Pakistan’s progress as a rapidly developing country. The four main petals of the monument represent the four provinces (Balochistan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, and Sindh), while the three smaller petals represent the three territories (Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Kashmir and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas).

The Monument has been designed to reflect the culture and civilization of the country and depicts the story of the Pakistan Movement, dedicated to those who sacrificed themselves for future generations.

Discover and visit some of the awesome monuments throughout Pakistan.

Pakistan Nawadraat ka Khazana hai Lakin na Hamain Aur na Hamari Government ko Iss ki Qadar hai. Agar Qadar hoti Tau Qeemati Asasa Jaat Yun Zaiaa na Hotay. Abb bhi Tawajo di Ja Ay tau Bohat si Nadir Emaraat Bahal ho Sakti hain. Agar Aisa ho Ja Ay Tau ” Siyahat” k Zaria se Bohat si Daulat Kama e Ja Sakti hai. Lahore mein “Jahangir Tomb” k Ird Gird Kachi Aabadiyan Bana ker Uss ka Husan hi Ghehna diya Gaya hai. Halan k Qanoon k Mutabiq Inn Emaraat k Nazdeek Koi Construction ho hi nahi Sakti. Mehkama “Aasar e Qadeema” kahan hy?
