In the category of powerful, one of a kind, and stunning Buddhist architecture, Pakistan presents the award-winning and the well-preserved ancient city of Taxila. The Pakistani Tourism Development Corporation states that this city is the home to many fantastic Buddhist structures built over the past millennia. The city itself boasts a continuous history of more than 3,000 years.

It functioned as the primary administrative center of Gandhara. Lying a mere about 20 miles (or 35 kilometers) from Islamabad Pakistan’s capital today, this attractive city is easy for tourists to reach and should not at all be missed for its unique charms and unforgettable, stunning architectural wonders.

The entire city attained the coveted status of UNESCO World Heritage Site from the United Nations back in 1980.
