It is our fortune that six Pakistani sites are registered on the United Nations Educational, Scientific & Cultural Organisation’s World Heritage List. The Mohenjo-Daro, Makli necropolis in Thatta, Remnants of Taxila, Lahore Fort and Shalimar Gardens, Rohtas Fort in Jhelum and Buddhist ruins of Takht-e-Bahi in Mardan. A World Heritage site Makli had countless prominence in antiquity becauseof larger-than-life elaborations, intricate designs, stunning structural sites and centuries old monuments, which are a treat for heritage lovers.
