Well its such a remarkable historical place to visit. With great exterior and Well maintained interior its also the work place of armed officials.

Khyber Pass

Reviewed By ImranSchah - Islamabad, Pakistan

A fantastic trip that normally takes 1.5 hrs from Peshawar to Khyber pass, the passage of ancient travelers, invaders like Genghis Khan and Babur of Farghana, who led the expeditions to Indian subcontinent through this historical pass. The area seems very safe and there are check points of Pakistan army on the highway. Please keep your Pakistan citizen card with you if you are a Pakistani and for foreigners please have 3/4 copies of your passport and visa pages. Foreign female travelers should cover themselves with a shawl, better to wear Pakistani dress with a shawl.

Peshawar Gandhara Museum

Reviewed By PakistanTripPlanners - Lahore, Pakistan

The Peshawar Museum was founded in 1907 as "Victoria Hall," in memory of Queen Victoria. The two-story building was built in a syncretic architectural style consisting of British, Hindu, Buddhist and Mughal Islamic styles. The museum initially had only one exhibition hall, but two more were added in 1969–70 . Any one who is interested in Gandhara Art it is a worth seeing Museum. The department of Archaeology has maintained it very well.
