Ruins of Taxila of Gandhara civilization are a must-visit place as it is a UNESCO world heritage site. The size of the ruins is very huge and makes one think about what the lifestyle of people from those times would have been as they are almost 2000 years old. The layout of the city is very impressive. This place has the capability of becoming a major tourist attraction; all it needs is a little marketing. It is a dream place for people who are engrossed in history and archaeology.

These ruins are stretched up to a wide area and it takes a drive of about 30 minutes to reach the end. Taxila Museum is the first spot of the journey which is a fascinating museum with all the ancient things of the Gandhara civilization showcased. The major highlights of this place are Julian and Sirkap. The guides over there have immense knowledge about the things kept in there so if you have a keen interest in history then, asking for their help would be recommended.

Another attraction near the Ruins of Taxila is a Buddhist monastery called Mohra Muradu. Recommended hotels to stay nearby include Grand Islamabad Hotel, Khyber Lodge 2, and Mulberry Residence. For a general idea, the price rate of the Grand Islamabad Hotel is 43 US Dollars, although prices may vary.
