DOAM Discovers 38 New Archaeological Sites in Islamabad

ISLAMABAD: The Department of Archaeology and Museums (DOAM) in Islamabad has recently announced the discovery of 38 new archaeological sites within the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT).

The sites were found over the course of the last five years of exploration, with the help of teams of archaeologists who had previously identified six other sites in the federal capital.

This discovery is part of a larger expedition that has already uncovered historical sites such as the Ban Faqiran Stupa, Mai Qamru Mosque, the Tomb of Sultan Makrab Khan, Farwala Fort, Rawat Fort, and Shah Allah Ditta Cave.

According to the DOAM, the discovery of these new sites is expected to provide exciting opportunities for archaeologists to learn more about the past and cultural heritage of Islamabad.

This is not the first time that new archaeological sites have been discovered in the capital.

In 2020, a new site was found in the Margalla Hills, believed to be from the Neolithic period and estimated to be around 8,000 years old.

It is considered one of the most significant archaeological sites ever discovered in Islamabad.


  1. Very exciting read. Would live to visit all these sites with my kids as they live to visit and know more about our history.

    Looking forward to hearing back from the DOAM.


  2. CDA and Partners FWO has ruined the access to Shah Allah Ditta and nobody cares, this place is more beautiful than Monal as it has 2 natural water springs but the road to caves and beyond is a mess infact there is No Road at all, while CDA HAS literally ruined the access to SHAH ALLAH DITTA (SAD) the roads from D12 to SAD has been wreaked by FWOs earth moving equipment and the Chairman CDA IS TIGHT LIPPED about it….ironic the historic site is in shambles, thanks to CDA

  3. We should immediately build a housing society, illegal mosque and madrasa and a lavish gangster style villa , exclusive golf club, education-business center, slum, garbage dumping grounds, industrial waste land on these sites. Archeological sites are jaay ibrat and remnants of old civilizations should be razed. People frequenting them should be stopped as this is unislamic. The above mentioned things are what we need, not just historical and archeological sites.

  4. The news heading is attractive but the body gives name of many sites that are well known since the last 2o-25 years. So there is a dire need of serious journalists n historians for bringing authentic a new information for the readers. I find this piece of news totally useless.
