Rajah Bazaar

For an authentic, albeit chaotic, shopping experience in Islamabad, you can hardly do better than Rawalpindi's Rajah Bazaar. Spreading out from Fowara Chowk, you can find vendors, shops and stalls in every direction selling everything you can think of, from clothing to daily needs. Towers remain of old Hindu temples in the area.


Shopping in Islamabad-Rawalpindi can be as varied as the cities themselves. Spend the afternoon browsing, shopping and eating at one of the many large modern shopping malls, which contain everything a shopper could need, or head to one of the more traditional open-air markets to pick up some local handicrafts or traditional garments. Some real unique finds await the patient shopper who takes the time to explore the city's many shopping possibilities.
