Clock tower was built in British colonical era and it's the landmark which built in such a way that it intersect eight bazar (Bazaar mean market). You can find anything here in those eoght bazar. Many old shop's are in eight bazar with good quality.

Eight bazar (market) of faisalabad!

There are eight bazar of faisalabad with many shops, but yes variety is specific for each bazar.

  • Katchary bazaar is famous for court as it's name also indicate the court (katchary)
  • Rail bazar is famous for Gold, although many people can't enter in gold market because there's a lot of gold in the market and whenever i went to rail bazar i see a rule that a few Can enter in bazar due to robbery cases.
  • Aminpur bazar is famous for books and stationary luggage, it's my favourite bazar because i can find my favorite books from here in cheap rate.
  • Montgomery Bazar is famous for traffic update and about the road construction and updates.
  • Bhawana bazar is famous for luggage of electronics.
  • Chaniot bazar is famous for medicine and clothes shops.
  • Jhang bazar is famous for high quality fashion and clothing. You can find fruit and dry fruits too in jhang bazar.
  • Aurangzeb bazar is famous for food and for kitchen utensils.

There's a variety of things in these bazar, although people from different city came to faisalabad for shipping. I was once shoked to know that people from Islamabad also come to faisalabad for shipping.

I remember when my mother visit to her family, she always buy some clothes to gift them as she said that Faisalabad is the city of clothes so why not gift something which is famous is faisalabad. And the one thing we get clothes in cheap rate too while now as because of inflation nothing is cheap.

The fact!

I never use camera in those eight bazar or in clock tower because there's always a huge crowd of people and i feel awkward to capture picture and mostly i prefer to keep my phone in home.
Mostly people lost in crowd
And believe me people lost their in huge crowd like i went there with my friend but suddenly she disappeared from my eyes and lost in the crew than I've to find her by doing an announcement in speaker.
