The Valley of Pukhtoons....Peshawar.....A drive on the Peshawar Jamrud Road leads to Afghanistan via famous Karkhano market, the historic Khyber Pass and Khyber Agency

The valley of Pukhtuns, with a rich culture and traditional background had once become a great place for shopping stuff especially imported one that had been suppose to be bring through Pak Afghan border in past. Karkhano market is situated on thePeshawar Jamrud road. It is the same road that leads to the historic khyber Pass site and then to Afghanistan via Khyber Agency. In the way is situated karkhano market composed of a series of markets that have a loads of stuff and the Sitara market, where lots of cosmetic and other foreign stuff on the display. Locals regularly do visit here and buy the daily stuff. Many people from Panjab Pakistan also love to visit here for shopping as they can buy a good quality of foreign stuff with reason able prices here as compared to other markets of Pakistan.In both of these markets sell different items almost every kind of daily usuage available here.....


  1. I have been to this market thrice. Whenever we get a chance to stay in Peshawar, we surely visit this market. Chitralis call it “Karkhana”. I do agree this market has a huge variety of products. I had brought some gift items from here which were of excellent quality but a bit expensive.
