    Dear Tariq,

    That was in Tuzke Babri when the Mughal king from Farghana called it, Pushpapura, (the city of flowers), those days are gone bro.

    Pizza Hut Army Stadium, Usmania Restaurant, Silver Dragon (Chinese restaurant)on University road.

    Avoid the busy markets in Peshawar, the city has been suffering for a decade due to militant attacks and bombings.

    Allah hafiz,

    Imran Schah

    Nearby the Chowk Yadgaar is a Cunningham Clock Tower It was built in 1900 "in commemoration of the Diamond jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen Empress", but. is named after Sir George Cunningham who came along somewhat later. Cunningham started his Asian career as the political agent assigned to North Waziristan (in the Tribal Areas) and advanced to become governor of NWFP in 1937-46 and again after Independence in 1947-8.
