MAJOR CITIES OF PAKISTAN
Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan where the urban population earns its livelihood by doing different kinds of services. It is also the cultural, economic and political hub of Pakistan. Peshawar is another major city of Pakistan which is situated in the northern west side of Pakistan and comes under the North Western Province. The city is growing in leaps and bounds as the trade and commerce sector is booming in the city. There are indigenous industries set up in this part of the country which are doing great business by exporting their traditional goods to the different foreign countries such as U.S.A and thereby earning a lot of revenue. Lahore, Multan and other cities are not as densely populated as the cities of Islamabad and Peshawar. The historical forts and monuments are largely to be found in the cities of Bahawalpur and Multan and they have a rich history to boast about.
