48 Amazing Historical Forts And Palaces in Pakistan

The Faiz Mahal (Faiz Palace) Khairpur, Pakistan

Pakistan is a beautiful country; there is no doubt about it. It is endowed with not only natural beauty, but also an extensive and impressive history which left its mark in the form of architecture and culture. Pakistan is a culturally and architecturally rich country and it is evident from the number of historical sites that are still standing in Pakistan. From forts to palaces to temples and to mosques etc, Pakistan has everything. It wouldn’t be wrong to say Pakistan is any architecture-lover’s dream destination.

The most beautiful wonders of architecture are the forts and palaces of Pakistan as Pakistan has always been an important location in the South Asia and it has always had a great geographical and strategic value – hence has seen many conquerors and rulers who of course built their lavish palaces and huge forts within their kingdom’s boundary which is present-day Pakistan! Most of the palaces and forts in Pakistan are quite old but thankfully most are well-preserved.

So today I have compiled a list of 48 Amazing Historical Forts And Palaces in Pakistan. This list is very close to my heart as I am myself a lover of beautiful historical architecture, so all the forts and palaces in this list were hand-picked by me. These are not the only forts and palaces in Pakistan, there are many others but unfortunately I couldn’t find their picture. Anyway, I hope you would enjoy this list! Here we go…
