The Pakistani Monument is situated between Islamabad and Rawalpindi. On the top of the mountain, there is a green area for visiting leaders to plant trees. In February 1964, the Prime Minister planted tallow trees here; in June 1978, the Deputy Prime Minister planted sycamore trees; in June 1981, the Prime Minister planted Coptis trees; in March 1984, the President planted cypress trees; in November 1989, Premier Li Peng planted Magnolia trees; and in May 1990, Chairman Wanli planted pine trees. National Monument Introduction: The National Monument began construction on May 25, 2004, and was officially completed on March 23, 2007. It covers an area of about 2.8 hectares with a total cost of more than 580 million rupees (1 rupee is about 0.07 yuan). Generally speaking, the monument looks like a budding lotus flower, consisting of four large petals and three small petals. According to reports, four large petals represent four provinces of Pakistan, and three small petals represent three regions of Pakistan. Together, they symbolize the unity of the Pakistani people.
In terms of political significance, it is similar to Tian'anmen Square in China. The National Monument was built during Musharraf's reign. It took two years and cost 580 million rupees, or more than 70 million yuan. The monument is elegant in shape, consisting of four large petals and three small petals. Four large petals symbolize the four provinces of Pakistan: Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan and the Northwest Frontier Province; three small petals symbolize the three territories of Pakistan: the Northern Territory, the Pakistani Kashmir Region and the Federally Administered Tribal Region. A small pentagonal steeple lies directly ahead. Seen from the top, the crescent shaped by seven petals, surrounded by the star shape of the steeple, is the star and moon symbol of the Pakistani flag. There are reliefs on the petals. They are mainly carved with the customs and monuments of various parts of Pakistan, the father of the country Jennah, the national poet Iqbal and so on.

The overall area of the Pakistani Monument is not particularly large, but it is very characteristic. The four petals represent the four provinces of Pakistan. The figure on the petals mainly tells the history of the founding of Pakistan. It is also a major place for Pakistani teenagers to receive patriotic education, where they will meet many students, especially during holidays. Pakistani people are really enthusiastic about the Chinese people. Every time they come out, someone will take a picture with me.
The average local ticket is 20 rupees, but foreigners need 250. Afzal, the cute little old man, advised me not to go in because the tickets were so expensive. But as a must-see spot, I went here without hesitation. I really felt the enthusiasm of the Pakistani people and the friendship to the Chinese people. Many women and children asked to take pictures with me. It's really a wave and a wave. Whether the star treatment is Laoba's circle of friends has been brushed by me.
