Those who love to explore the land, also crave for the hidden marks there. People are fond of tourism and travel to experience the spellbinding view of nature and to discover hidden places. These hidden gems are just not yet to be discovered. It also includes those traces, the time has evolved them into modern cities.
Here we are sharing some hoary essence of busy metropolitan cities of Pakistan, which are worth to explore.
Peshawar – Culture, and Charisma
“Perhaps the oldest city of South Asia has a lot more to explore from ancient times. Each era brought new changes towards the city and made it classical. Still, the city has maintained its charisma and traditional charm. If you want to get an overlook of how traditional Peshawar looked like, we recommend you going to ‘Qissa Khawani Bazar.’ As the name depicts the place, a region of storytellers. The old ‘Street of Storytellers’ has little memory left of the traders and travelers that would gather here to swap tales; most of its teashops have given way to clothes and electrical shops. The other place next than bustling Qissa Khawani Bazar is Sethi Street.”
“‘Sethi Mohalla’ is reminiscent of how elite Peshawari folk used to build their houses. There are seven Havelis built in almost the same style, in a street less twisting and turning than usually walled city streets. These Havelis are rare architectural masterpieces that were built by the affluent Sethi family. Other than this the city has a number of historical places including Fort Bala Hisar, Jamrud Fort, Shahi Bagh, Mughal Bridge, and iconic Khyber Pass.”
Karachi – The City of Lights
“Back then ‘Kolachi’ the city is the biggest and busiest metropolitan, serving as the economic backbone of the country. We have seen huge changes in infrastructure and road map of the city frequently. Almost every New Year brings new projects. And, the cultural adaptability of the region is so quick. The city once had people belong to ethnicities including Jews, Parsees, Hindus, Christians, and others. Things changed so quickly. Still, we have the old city preserved into a small region. Saddar, Soldier Bazar, and Empress Market still display the culture and lifestyle of Karachi city. The old buildings in Saddar Town, Guru Mandir and, Lines area. Buildings, Markets, Transports, and Tangas, everything shows the beautiful part of the city, we don’t see often. They also include the slums and low profile areas but, also show off the cultural diversity of the region. Karachi has not yet lost its touch; from Mohatta Palace to Frere Hall, from Jahangir Kothari Parade to the Quaid’s Mazaar, it takes pride in housing iconic landmarks.”
Lahore – The Lively City
“The rich culture and enthusiastic lifestyle of Lahore have been magnificent since always. You can explore it quite easily, the remains are preserved in the walled city of Lahore. The Walled City was bestowed with numerous monuments during the Mughal era, with some of Lahore’s most iconic structures being located in the Walled City, such as the lavishly decorated Wazir Khan Mosque, the massive Badshahi Mosque, and the Shahi Hammam. Other than this, Anarkali Bazaar, Chuburji Chowk and food streets have the spirit of the city.”“We have shared a few cities that are said to be historical cities of the region, however, they have evolved a lot. These cities are serving in the country very well. We believe! There’s more a lot and we are waiting for you to share about them.”
