One of such branch is the architectural wonders you can spot in Pakistan. Whether it is residential building, a religious place or a monument, the unique colors and textures of the place takes you back in time, as soon as you step inside.
For example, when Mughal ruled the sub continent, from mid 16th till mid 19th century, they placed their mark on land by constructing forts, lavish gardens, monuments (Taj Mahal is one such example) and much more. They also constructed up Mosques in many parts of the region, many of which are still standing tall today.
