Tourism in Pakistan: 16 National Monuments of Pakistan

By Abdul Hadi — Published on 18/08/2016

In 1997, there were nine National Monuments in Pakistan according to Pakistan Environmental Protection Agency (PEPA). As of 2016, there are eleven National Monuments of Pakistan. Almost four hundred places by provincial governments and three hundred places by the federal government have been declared by as protected and national monuments areas. However, officially there are eleven monuments while there are many other places as well that are also treated as national monuments.


In Pakistan government is striving to furtherance the system of protected areas for the protection of monuments, archaeological sites, buildings, endangered species, habitats, and ecosystems. Protected areas in Pakistan can be broadly categorized into two sections; they are ecosystems and archaeological & cultural sites.

In Pakistan, there already exists an extensive list of officially notified protected archaeological sites and monuments under the Antiquities Act 1975. The approach in developing these guidelines is to concentrate on the protection of the existing sites. New sites may also be notified through the federal or provincial archaeology departments.

The Federal Department of Archaeology maintains a master register containing basic and vital information on the protected monuments and sites including full measurements of the protected area, description, location and government notification with the date of protection.
