The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is located in South Asia. It has a 1,046 km coastline along the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman in the south and is bordered by India to the east, Afghanistan to the northwest, Iran to the southwest and China in the far northeast. Pakistan is a vast country and is known for its scenic beauty and diverse culture. The country's attraction range from the ruin of civilization such as Mohenjo-daro, Harappa and Taxila, to the Himalayan hill stations, which attract those interested in winter sports. The north part of Pakistan has many old fortresses, ancient architecture and the Hunza and Chitral valley, home to small pre-Islamic Animist Kalasha community claiming descent from Alexander the Great. The romance of the historic Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province is timeless and legendary, Punjab province has the site of Alexander's battle on the Jhelum River and the historic city Lahore, Pakistan's cultural capital, with many examples of Mughal architecture such as Badshahi Masjid, Shalimar Gardens, Tomb of Jahangir and the Lahore Fort.
