Posted on at


My name is haider nawaz and I am living in Peshawar city. Peshawar the heart of kpk is 172 kilometer away from the Islamabad. It was initially occupied by those people whose speak Hindko. In the ancient times and when Pakistan was just established in 1947, at that time it was bounded by boundry wall which have more than eight gates but nowadays the boundary wall is deficient in various locations because of population increase and the rush of villagers which are adjoint to the Peshawar city now the people of Peshawar are just like community belonging to different races but majority are pathans and hindko speakers became in minority…

The different bazaars in the boundary wall are very popular due to their historical background which include thefamous qissa khwani, kochi bazaar, hashnagri bazaar, karim pura, dabgri bazaar, shoba bazaar, Khyber bazaar, meena bazar and shaheen bazaar.

The bazaar WHICH  is famous for its historical background which is called street of story and tale. In old daysthis was the site of camping ground for Caravan and military adventures. Now adays the story tellers are gone but the atmosphere there is the same. When the people pass through these bazaar it reminds the old history. Here the people belong to every field of life in various race and casts and cultures.

Nearby to the qissa khwani bazzar on the left side Is the bazaar Bater bazaan.

On the other end of the street of jewelers is the ladyreading hospital which Is the one of the largest Post graduate Hospital in Pakistan.
