The caves used to be the resting place for the people passing through this area and also as already mentioned by one other reviewer that this place also been used by Buddha in old times. But it requires the attention from the concerned authorities. The are nice 2 to 3 restaurants / cafés available close to it. I like the one on top called La Vista Café. The view is quite marvelous from the garden / lawn of the café. Also they have nice indoor comfortable sitting. Shisha taste is quite nice or I can say one of the best Shisha's available in the area. Also the other food like French fries, Pakoras, tea, coffee are of average taste. The live music and singing from the local people of the area makes the atmosphere more enthusiastic and lively.

Shah Allah Ditta is a neglected history . I think Archaeology Department of Pakistan and UNESCO needs to do alot to preserve it .

Located around a km north of Shah Allah Ditta village are few prehistoric limestone caves that have been in human use since thousands of year. Reportedly these caves has been under use of Budhist and Hindu monks. Contain a few very old banyan trees with numerous roots falling to the ground and a freshwater spring. The area has been well maintained though now one can see quite a bit of litter spread by the visitors. There is a big car park just next to Sadhu Ka Baagh. From the caves one can take an westerly climb and hike to Ban Faqirian stupa that is located at the top of the mountain.
A very nice place to visit that is less than an hours drive from most places in Islamabad.

Shah Allah ditta, nice place to hangout with friends and families. Has few food outlets also which serve desi food starting from breakfast to late night BBQ. Caves although a small place but still has a unique attraction due to its calmness and natural look. An old time water pool is also there where colourful fish can be seen and a nearby water spring also adds beauty to this place.
For dining although there are multiple options but I would personally recommend “saadhu’s retreat” which has better facilities as compared to others, they also arrange musical events occasionally and have some small scale activities for children’s attraction. Breakfast at their upper terrace is also a unique experience btw.
At caves and nearby spots one can roam around freely without any feeling of discomfort as people are friendly and welcoming.
Good place for families and medium size groups specially.

An old man used to be there who used to tell us about the story of these caves. According to him, Buddha lived in these caves some 2000 years ago. There is a small pond which houses ducks and fishes. The place is a must see for everyone.

There has been allot of development there recently. Allot of restaurants and cafes are now open to serve people.

Rich historical little place hidden in the immediate outskirts of Islamabad, just on the foot of Margallas, next to D12 sector. Could do with the road leading to it (the one which leads to it from the Shah Allah Ditta village) laid well and maintenance of the heritage. Has couple of food/relaxing joints next to it as well, which could be future hot spots for tourists and ISB locals

This place consist of two ancient caves and a spring which contain traces of human from ancient times. This is a nice place to visit if you have interest in history. There is also a Buddhist stu-pa on 1.5 hour walk from this place.

A few nice caves and large old trees which showed the natural world well. The visit was made by having excellent live musicians playing ‘Quawalli’ in the background.

An interesting place to experience both nature and culture. Make sure you try 'Pakoray' and take a ride on the swing.
