Islamabad’s relative infancy as a major metropolis is reflected in the city’s architecture, which is modern – the influence of its first urban planner Constantinos A. Doxiadis is pretty evident – yet distinctly Islamic in appearance. The main Islamabad attractions include Shakarparian Hills, Murghzar Mini Zoo and Children’s Park, and Rawal Lake.


Shakarparian Hills, Rising to 609 metres is the attractive tourists place and this terraced garden offers sweeping vistas of surrounding hills, Rawal Lake, and the cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. RawalLake is a man made lake that covers an area of 8.8 square kilometres and adjoins the Shakarparian Hills. It has in the recent past become a popular venue for picnics and gatherings.


Daman-e-Koh is another low peak hilltop that has become a popular spot for picnics, the Daman-e-Koh also affords beautiful views of the city. Murghzar Mini Zoo and Children’s Park is located at the foot of Daman-e-Koh viewpoint, the Murghzar Zoo has become a popular Islamabad attraction amongst children and adults alike.
