The village used to be much more serene with fewer shops but the location at the foot of Margalla Hills is lovely. Worth a visit in the day time to get the beautiful view of the hills.

A nicely restored village, it adds another feel to Islamabad. As a Mughal-era village 620 m in elevation, it was visited by various civilizations, such as Greek, Buddhist, Mughal, Ashoka and the colonial times. During the Mughal period, this village was considered to be a garden resort and spring. It’s not the relaxing atmosphere that I love the most but... More

Saidpur is one of the most scenic places in the capital city of Pakistan. Since the village was remodeled about a decade ago, so you can enjoy a lovely combination of rustic and modern day life. Besides some old village houses,a visit to the old Hindu temple and a beautiful mosque is highly recommended. At night, you may enjoy the... More

There is an old house whose rooms have been made into a big hall by removing the walls. Inside, are photos of foundation laying of Islamabad city and her prominent buildings. They are historic...

This is one of the most beautiful places you can visit in all of Islamabad. This small village nestled between the Margalas and the city is a great example of what this area looked like before the capital was built. The village has several restaurants, an art gallery, and several shops to keep you busy for a wonderful evening. At... More

The village was very close to downtown and a short 10 minute ride via car. The village had several restaurants and all kinds of gift shops. We ate at one of the restaurants and visited a museum there. The museum was free to enter and there was a guide that explained some of the pictures. The museum was only one... More
