Attock Fort pic is taken from Attock Bridge while travelling from Islamabad, Federal Capital of Pakistan, to Peshawar, the border city between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Attock fort or Attock Qila is situated just 80 kilometers away from the Islamabad. On the Indus River’s banks, it was constructed 500 year ago and Khawaja Shams ud din Khawafi was its supervisor. Attock is a city which is situated in the centre of Peshawar (the provincial capital of Khayber Pakhtun Khwa province) and the Islamabad. This place is very near to the Afghanistan’s border. The basic aim to build this structure was to defend against the Afghan warriors. Within the river, some part of the Fort is also visible. Some minarets that came under water are also looking beautiful and increasing the serenity of the view. Also, at this point of river, two main rivers of Pakistan meet. On the right side, reddish water is of Kabul river and the greenish water is of River Sindh. From this point onwards, this river is called Indus or Sindh river.
