Hasan Abdal

Hasan Abdal is a city in northern Punjab and is located at 40 km northwest of Islamabad. Hassan Abdal holds a significant place for Sikh pilgrims as the home of the Gurdwara Panja Sahib, one of the most sacred sites in Sikhism. The town is also known for its association with the 16th century Mughal Emperor Akbar. Several monuments located here date back to the Emperor Akbar’s period. These include the Wah Gardens, Hakimon ka Maqbara, and Tomb of Lala Rukh. Hasan Abdal also lies near Taxila which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its Buddhist and ancient Greek ruins.

Nowadays, Hasan Abdal lies at the intersection of the Karakoram Highway, and the M1 Motorway. As part of the multi-billion dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), Hasan Abdal will serve as the terminus for CPEC’s Western Alignment while the Hakla–Dera Ismail Khan Motorway will commence at Hasan Abdal.
