What is Bab-e-Pakistan?

The Bab-e-Pakistan Monument is being constructed in the memory of those who sacrificed their present for the future of Pakistan. The Bab-e-Pakistan Monument at Walton has a history worthy of being recorded in a tangible form. The site of the National Monument provided the first home under the open sky for the hundreds and thousands of refugees who migrated to Pakistan in 1947.

The Government of Pakistan through Bab-e-Pakistan Trust has embarked upon a national level project for construction of a memorial as a tribute to the refugees who scarified everything for their freedom and for the creation of Pakistan.
