Taxila: (Town in Pakistan)
30 km northwest of Rawalpindi lies Taxila, one of the most important archaeological sites in Asia.  Historians date Taxila between the 1st and 5th centuries AD and believe the city flourished economically and culturally.  Taxila includes numerous buildings, fortifications, monasteries, and settlements.  Taxila was the capital of the Buddhist kingdom of Gandhara and an educational center.  Visitors will be struck by the massive Buddha and enjoy seeing other Buddhist monuments throughout the valley.
