The city was developed and constructed way back in 1960’s and it was during that time that Karachi was replaced with Islamabad being the capital city of Pakistan.

A lot of planning was involved behind the development and hence it has been divided into eight different zones, which includes sectors like educational sector, commercial sector, residential sector, diplomatic enclave etc.
