Hmmm I think most Pakistani christians are Roman Catholics and some Protestants. I personally haven't seen any Orthodox churches. Maybe there are few that I don't know about.

I actually was interested in finding out and tried google but found none.

Just out of curiosity what's the difference between an Orthodox Christian and a Catholic?

The Orthodox church is considered to be the least 'reformed' Christian Church, and has remained largely the same ever since it was basically inaugurated by the Emperor Constantine. Due to the split of the Roman Empire, there were two factions of Christianity - the Orthodox vein based in Constantinople and the Catholic faction based in Rome. In addition, the Orthodox church claims its lineage all the way back to the original church of the Apostles although other Eastern churches claim this as well.

Both believe in essence in a God that is three and one - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (or Holy Trinity). Also, the Orthodox believe that everyone in Heaven is a Saint, and is a part of the Church congregation. Catholics on the other hand beatify saints, not everyone believed to be in heaven is a saint.

Orthodox Christianity, in representation, uses much more iconography than Catholicism.

I love the religious architecture in Islamabad. These two churches, combined with Faisal Mosque, create a very pleasant yet non-traditional ambiance. Extremely modern in every sense of the word.

Well, other architecture in the city might be modern but isn't nearly as aesthetically pleasing as the religious buildings that I mentioned. I personally don't like a single one of the high-rises along the Blue Area.

Famous church in Nathia Gali. Nathia Gali is a hill station about 90km from Islamabad and at a 2.5 hour drive. It's at 8,200 ft height and is known for its evening walks and it's beautiful weather in summer.

The ruins of a church in Murree dating back to the times of British Raj in the subcontinent. Murree was once the summer capital of the province of Punjab where the English would come to spend the hot summers. Its pleasant during the summer months and when the snow comes ... it's even prettier. Memories of the old times are scattered over the hills in the form of aging structures.
