Pakistan – Historical Monuments at Makli, Thatta

Herita­ge sites remind us of histor­ical experi­ences of humani­ty, says US consul-genera­l.

The United States (US) recognises that the cultural heritage sites in Pakistan are essential reminders of the historical experiences of humanity and conservation efforts should be carried for the preservation of such sites so that they continue telling stories of the past.
