  • Great design. But I'd recommend you to visit the site on weekdays. It's crowded on weekends, the number of people unusually high. There is an entrance fee, quite nominal. Rs. 20. You can view most of the parts, both southern and northern from there. It is a beautiful place to visit. It has a small museum that features the Pakistan Movement. The Monument represents the Four Provinces and their Union. From aerial View, it seems like a flower with a star and crescent moon at its center. The best time to visit the monument is after 4 pm so that sunset could be enjoyed. the whole city landscape is visible from the Monument. When i was there with my family .. Ac was not working AC was off ... hot day and spend 3 hours and its too hot that day ...
  • I had the pleasure of visiting this monument, and I can tell you that it is truly a wonderful place to visit. It has such a rich history and the people who work there are very friendly and knowledgeable. The monuments are beautiful and the scenery is breathtaking. The architecture is so unique that it makes you think about what it must have been like in the past. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience something different, but also wants to learn more about history!
