Chenab Chowk

The design looks to me like a power loom or smth.

I've never been to Faisalabad, but when my cousin did back in the mid-nineties he came back dissapointed and complained at the high levels of pollution in the city, among other issues.

The city is being improved. Most of the main roads have been recarpeted. Road junctions and round about have been redesgned and properly landscaped. The drainage system and road electrification has been upgraded. But the one thing missing over there is recreational space n life n activities like we have in Karachi, Lahore or Islamabad. I roamed around the city for hours and couldnt find any better spot which was also not to my mark, the D Ground. And the rest of the city was a slum. And another reason why life n activities over there are different cauz ppl over there mossly are illeterate and labour class, exception of the rich industrial families. The urban expansion of the city over the last being year has engulfed many villages and town as a result of which the lifestyle of ppl and their activities still remain the same.

This is an image section. People post here what ever images they have. Unfortunately, unlike Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi, we do not have a representation from any other city that would help to promote a good city image, therefore this is the material we have for Fsd right now. If you have some good images with us, do share them here!

Some of the underconstruction projects you have mentioned can be seen here: http://www.urbanpk.c...hp?showforum=57

and http://www.urbanpk.c...hp?showforum=68

We do not post here image of underconstruction project in this section!!

Everyone has the right to share their experience wether it is the 20th century or the 21st century. Things do change, cities do develop but experiences do matter!

Faisalabad has not developed at a very good pace as it should have. It is the 4th largest city and compare to the 3 major metros, it still does not have a major urban life and urban spaces. D-ground and the funland near the iqbal stadium was the only place I found to be of some interest. The rest of the city has a very dull life. There are hardly any destination point for outsiders. I visit the city annually or after every 2-3 years. The city has improved as compared to 80z n 90'z but like I mentioned earlier it still lacks a major urban life and destination point for outsiders.

I have asked some friends to share images of FSD, so hopefully in the coming months we will have something new and different.

RANA AAA could you post some well captured images sooner!
