Pakistan is the site of some of the earliest human settlements, home to an ancient civilisation rivalling those of Egypt and Mesopotamia, and the crucible of two of the world's major religions, Hinduism and Buddhism. The country is a special interest destination. Its main attractions include culture and archaeological sites in Taxila, Moenjodaro and Harrappa and adventure tourism, which includes desert safaris, trekking and mountaineering in the Hindukush, Karakoram and Himalayan ranges. Islamabad, the capital, along with its twin city Rawalpindi, basks in the backdrop of the Margalla Hills. The two cities are dotted with numerous lakes, shrines and forts. Of the two, Rawalpindi still exudes a traditional flavour with its many quaint old bazaars. Karachi is Pakistan's commercial centre and largest city. It presents an interesting and colourful combination of the old and new. Unlike many large cities, Karachi offers an array of white sandy beaches including the hip Clifton Beach and Manora Island. One of the city's main attractions is the Quaid-e-Azam Mausoleum, a distinctive monument to Pakistan's founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah. On excursions from Karachi, one can visit the archaeological site of Moenjodaro - once the city of an Indus Valley civilisation - and the Chaukundi tombs.
