Since Pakistan is a Muslim country, there are mosques located all over the city. Islamabad’s most popular mosque is the Faisal Mosque.
It is unclear if the Pakistan Museum of Natural History is home to any food outlets. Muslim visitors will however be able to find plenty of Halal restaurants throughout the city of Islamabad.
