Islamabad’s history as the city that emerged from nothing

The history of Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, is a fascinating one. The city was founded in 1960 by President Ayub Khan, who wanted a modern capital that could rival other cities in the region. Islamabad replaced Karachi as the capital of Pakistan, which had been the country’s capital since independence in 1947.

The city was built from scratch in a very short period of time, taking only two years to construct. Islamabad was designed to be a modern, efficient city with wide streets, parks, and a modern infrastructure. The city was also built to be a symbol of Pakistan’s newfound independence and prosperity.

The city has grown significantly since its founding, and is now home to over 1.7 million people. It is the fastest growing city in Pakistan and is also the most developed, with a modern infrastructure and numerous international organizations.

Islamabad is also home to some of Pakistan’s most important monuments and sites, including the Faisal Mosque and the Pakistan Monument. These monuments are symbols of the city’s rich history and are visited by millions of people each year.
