Ander Sher Bazaar

Best known as the place to get quality jewellery (including pieces featuring authentic precious stones), Ander Sher is a popular market with an abundant offering of various ornaments - and not only. A separate section within specialises in items of gold. Custom-made pieces may be ordered.


Shopping is an art form in Peshawar, where avid bargain-hunters will feel right at home. Haggling is well-expected at markets (initial prices can be easily brought down by at least a third), and is even acceptable at some shops where prices appear to be fixed. Items to look out for include traditional chapli sandals, Afghani pakol (wool hats), pottery, brass and copper wares, quality fabrics, woven rugs, and more. Note that some areas, such as the Smugglers' Market, are best visited with a local guide.
