Rawalpindi

RAWALPINDI راولپنڈى‎
Rawalpindi (Urdu, Punjabi: راولپنڈى‎), commonly known as Pindi (Punjabi: پنڈی), is a rapidly growing city in the Pothohar region of northern Punjab, Pakistan. It is the 4th most populous metropolitan area of Pakistan.[2] It is located only 14 kilometres (9 mi) south from the capital city of Islamabad, in the province of Punjab. Due to the high interdependence and intertwined areas of the two cities, they are known as the twin cities of Rawalpindi/Islamabad. In the 1950s, Rawalpindi was smaller than Hyderabad and Multan, but the city's economy received a boost during the building of Islamabad (1959–1969), during which Rawalpindi served as the national capital. Rawalpindi is in the northernmost part of the Punjab province, located 275 km (171 mi) to the north-west of Lahore. It is the administrative seat of the Rawalpindi District. Also, Rawalpindi is the military headquarters GHQ of the Pakistani Armed Forces. Many tourists use the city as a stop before traveling towards the northern areas. It is on the GT road and motor way, makes it easy to come . Numerous shopping bazaars, parks and a cosmopolitan population attract shoppers from all over Pakistan and abroad. The city is home to several industries and factories. Islamabad International Airport is located in Rawalpindi, which is also the Chaklala Airbase, and serves both cities and several neighboring districts for international flights.

Rawalpinidi still needs to undergo a major re-design..

but its an awesome place to be !

Of course it is; where do all the people from Islamabad go after 6 pm?

Islamabad is virtually dead by 8:00pm; either everyones at home or there out in Rawalpindi shopping, eating, shopping, watching movies, shopping, walking around, shopping. Did I forget to mention shopping? Everytime I ask someone what are you doing this evening; "Hum Pindi Jarray Hai; Mainy New T-Shirt Hareeddni Hai"

Islamabad is a diplomatic city, no wonder theres nothing happening there after 8 PM, i hope after we get the new cricket stadium there, and matches are played, we could expect more traffic in Islamabad.

but with Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, and soon Gwadar, people have enough places to chill at ..

No matter what you do with Islamabad nothing will change; they tried Radio, TV, Newspaper even a TV show. Remember Chal Patto Isloo!

Im a really anti - pindi guy !! I know thats not going to go down well with you CNtower , but i think the place is a bit of a dump really, they do need a re-do but at tleast they could maintain things, its one of the dirtiest places ive been too. Im sure its vibrant, but places like lahore and Karachi theyre vibrant and fairly modern and ... you know what i mean ... wtvr im just dont like it at all. Im just going to run now b4 CNtower kills me !! lol

Yes, i agree, the city needs to be re-planned, and should be built on modern lines, with steel and glass buildings to beautify, along with good roads, and a good infrastructure, its not hard, if they start planning now, they can make it a beautiful place in 10 years time.

Yes thats right, the first thing that needs to be done is the roads, look at Lahore for example the roads there are brilliant now, theyve widened them and re laid some and its excellent. In Pindid if you get heavy rains the roads disintegrate into dirt (some of them). Then youve got these very ugly looking shops right upto the streets its just very messy and chaotic there. It needs complete re planning.

It dosen't need re-planning; the majority of those "ugly" shops are illegal; they aren't suppose to be there in the first place. Of course there are those that are legal and look like pieces of trash as well because people don't wanna maintain it.

Even though its a vibrant place, these pictures especially the 2 showing the streets of the city just emphasize why i really do not like this city.

That's true; Pindi is really falling apart yet right beside it Islamabad is growing into a good sized city which has been planned properly.

Rawal Dam is in Islamabad if I'm not mistaken; oh well close enough.

Corbis has some really nice pictures...
