77370 Views 192 Replies 26 Participants Last post by  AnmolSingh
I'm from South-Asia and all the states here are developing states which means most of them are somewhat on par with each other when it comes to infrastructural development. The four countries in this region that can boast skylines are Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Let's discuss as to which city has the best skyline and which has the potential to develop into the best.

Also, for reference, below is a list of cities in South Asia with the number of high-rise buildings (35m+) in them.

Mumbai - 2300
Delhi - 1805
Dhaka - 1521
Karachi - 1503
Lahore - 1185
Chittagong - 630
Kolkata - 627
Islamabad - 621
Chennai - 620
Pune - 555
Faisalabad - 521
Bangalore - 511
Hyderabad - 462
Gurgaon - 223
Multan - 196
Kochi - 139
Trivandrum - 138
Kanpur - 120

Seeing many posts on this thread, only mumbai qualify to be called as skyline. 2 mid-rise buildings with hazy background isn't a skyline.
Why spew venom.Every city has its own strength and culture.Please dont post negativity and vitiate the atmosphere and invite unneccessary discussion.
