This is most impressive building in whole of Islamabad. Beautiful architecture and well worth the visit. We went there before sunset and enjoyed the views both in daylight and twilight.
I went there after 30 years and was a bit disappointed to see that the crescents on minarets and the central projection were very rusty and not as shining as they once used to be. The main prayer hall opens for the regular prayers. There is a nice souvenir shop near the stairs for magnets, etc.

Army museum

Reviewed By flyfisher66 - Islamabad, Pakistan

Army Museum is one of those few museums in Pakistan that are organized on modern lines. Most sections follow a particular theme or event and have been quite artistically decorated. Provides good historical account of various aspects and events related to Pakistan.
The entry from CSD car park side has really made it easy for the civilians to visit the museum and there is no entry problem now. Do remember to carry your national ID card as entry will be denied if you don't show your identity.
A place worth a visit. Must take kids along.

Nila Sand

Reviewed By drnaeemch

Neela Saand is beautiful small waterfall with small Reservoir of clean water at approximately 40 minutes drive from Islamabad. The approach road is a narrow metalled road in good condition; a nice drive with beautiful scenery makes the journey a pleasure trip.
The water Reservoir is dangerous for non swimmers as the depths of water suddenly increases with the distance of few feet; a non swimmer will be caught unaware. There had been reported deaths at the site due to drowning and non swimmers are strongly recommended to wear life jackets which are available at site.
There is a small canteen where tea and drinks are available.
