Faisalabad's very own Big Ben, the Clock Tower, is located in the city center. It was built during the colonial rule of Britain over the sub-continent. British architecture is very apparent when you look at the make of the clock tower. However, the fun comes with the markets surrounding the Clock Tower. It has eight markets worldwide, and all of these markets are hustling with diversity and life. Go through the marketplaces on a free day and grab yourself some local snacks and a few souvenirs to take back home!


Go back in time at the Lyallpur Museum
