The official tourist map for Abbottabad urges visitors to discover its "hidden" treasures. Some think that should include a peek behind the infamous walls of Osama bin Laden's compound.
It makes sense to the deputy head of the tourism office.
The three-story villa is known around the world. Abbottabad is already popular as an alpine escape from the summer heat. And a museum at the last stand of the al Qaeda leader could mine some long-term cash from the town's instant brush with notoriety. Special section: The killing of Osama bin Laden
"It was a very important event, and I believe people from around the world would be very interested to visit it," said tourism official Yar Mohammed.
It's not a universal view by any stretch. Many want to demolish the building and try to recapture Abbottabad's ambiance as a quiet corner in a chaotic country.
But those contemplating some way to profit from the May 2 raid that killed bin Laden seem to know there's a well-established market for infamy. The Tower of London — and its sometimes role as a prison and execution hall — is one of the city's main tourist draws. Tours abound for everything from Hollywood tragedies to the trail of the Boston Strangler.
The bunker in Berlin where Adolf Hitler shot himself was left unmarked for years because German officials were worried that neo-Nazis could turn the site into a place of pilgrimage. The bunker was marked publicly for the first time in 2006 by a historical group trying to demystify one of the Third Reich's most symbolic places.
Bin Laden also brings extreme sensitivities. Al Qaeda remains active despite the loss of bin Laden. Pakistani authorities, meanwhile, have come under intense scrutiny from Washington for failing to locate bin Laden, who may have lived for years in Abbottabad within a short walk from one of Pakistan's top military academies.
