Pakistan is endowed with a large number of ancient sites and historic structures and is a treasure-house of ancient heritage, spanning over scores of centuries. It is home to Mehargarh, Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa, the land that beckoned Alexander to sail downriver Jhelum with purple flags fluttering; the spectacular Gandharan civilization as the seat of Buddhism; the devotional carvings of the Hindu Shahi temples of the Salt Range and Tharparkar; the stately funerary clusters of Makli, Multan and Uch Sharif, a fusion of local and imported culture representing successive Sultanate dynasties; the heart-expanding Chahar-baghs and jewel-like edifices of the greatest kingdom in the world, established by the young ruler of Farghana; the Sikhs emulating the Great Mughals, and the shared legacy of eclectic architecture with its European overtones, a bequest of the British who colonized this land.

It is not only the ancient sites and historic monuments, but equally, the historic urban cores, stretched from the peaks of the Khyber in the farthest north to the southern-most edge of the mighty river Indus — Peshawar, Multan, Thatta and Karachi, and scores of other living cities with their historic environments, all valuable in our search for, and understanding of Pakistan’s cultural diversity.
