The oldest city in the world is Taxila, a city in Pakistan that is home to many historical sites. Although many people were unaware, the city is nearly 2500 years old and is located 31 kilometres west of Islamabad.
One of the seven tehsils in the Rawalpindi district, Taxila was formerly known as Takshashila. The renowned Potohar Plateau's perimeter is where the city is located. This Gandharan Kingdom's history dates back to the 6th century BC, when it joined the Achaemenid Empire of Persia.
With its many Buddhist historical sites, including as the Dharmarajika stupa, Khader Mohra, Kunala stupa, Badalpur monasteries, and others, the city thrives. The city is particularly renowned for the Taxila Museum and its ancient ruins.
Taxila's residents are the exclusive owners of Punjabi culture and accent. The city's historical past and heritage sites are another defining feature that helps it stand out.
