Taxila is the place where Alexander the Great had to realise that total world domination was not going to happen. They did leave a lot of Greek culture in this ancient Bhuddist place, though :)

Taxila is such a big place with so many interesting archeological sites that it would literally take weeks to really explore it. Alas, I only had one afternoon, of which two hours of wonderful daylight was dedicated to visit yet another orange grove. Yes. Don't ask.

We did manage to visit the local museum and the excavation site of one of the oldest universities of the world.

I just realised that I've never got around to sharing a lot of the pictures that I took in the last two weeks of my stay in Pakistan, which was when we had two weddings (eight days of celebrations altogether) and afterward we finally had some free time to do stuff that tourists would do if there were any tourists in that country :)

What you are seeing is a 16th century fortress, which not only still houses an entire village in its walls but had several huge courts reserved for the governing family and high ranking military leaders.
