Saidpur, the modern village of Pakistan, located near the foot hills of Margala Hills in Islamabad.

One of the modern and oldest village in Pakistan is located inside capital Islamabad, along the slope of Margalla Hills. It belongs from Mughal era and having footprints of different civilizations like Hinduism, Greek, Ashoka, Buddhism , Gandhara, Mughal as well from Colonial period.

I am sure many of our country fellows don't knows about this place. After the establishment of "Des Pardes" a resturant, many people start visiting the place to enjoy their food in quite traditional and quaint fashioned style. I found it very interesting. At the same time Capital Development Authority has developed saidpur village into a tourist attraction and it becomes quite nice place for tourists both for the national and international visitors. Its a sort of mixture, an old village with a quaint look.One may may get the village view along with the modern touch.
The village presents a Picturesque view of surroundings.
