Pakistan in one of the most ancient lands known to man. Its cities flourished before Babylon was built, and its people practiced the art of good living, and corporate citizenship four thousand years before the European renaissance.
 
The Indus Valley Civilization was at its peak in Southern Pakistan, some 4500 years ago, and excavations at Moenjodaro, Harrapp and Kotdiji speak of a highly developed society thriving 2500 BC. In the North Buddhist Stupas, Monasteries and temples of Taxila, Takht-e-Bahi, Swat and Peshawar recall the great classical traditions of Gandhara Art, Architecture and Sculpture.
 
The rich archaeological finds at Moenjodaro, Mehrgarh, Kot Diji, Harrappa, Taxila, Shabazgarhi, Peshawar, Takht-e-Bahi, Swat, Gilgit, Skardu and at many other places are today the heritage of all mankind.
