Bahawalpur

Once a land of Nawabs and riches, Bahawalpur is now Pakistans 11th largest city.While not as famed as Lahore or the northern areas when you think Pakistani Tourism, Bahawalpur still offers a royal feast of sights and experiences for those who make it to the nawabs land. Bahawalpur, being in southern Punjab, was also influenced by the historical and Sufi centers of Multan and Uch Sharif.

Given all this history, it offers some beautiful palaces and mosques. It also has a royal graveyard that displays the blue tile and blue decorated buildings that southern Punjab and Sindh are known for. Alongside these more decorated buildings is the simple grand military sight of the Derawar Fort and the natural beauty of the desert it is situated in. For a special treat, visit during the jeep rally and witness the fireworks over the fort. Its a raw and impressive beauty, something that typical greenery can’t match. The city also has a great family amusement park and zoo. The museum is also very worth visiting.

Being Pakistans 11th largest city, Bahawalpur can be reached easily via road or train. It also has its own domestic airport. For a different and convenient tourism experience, Bahawalpur can’t be beaten.
