Rawalpindi (1,700 feet) is divided into an old city and and a new city or contonment (called cantt.) that are separated by rail road tracks. The new city was developed when the British began settling in 'Pindi during the last century and built a completely new town with colonial buildings and wider streets next to the existing city with its bazaars and galis. Originally Rawalpindi was a village of Rawals, a tribe of Yogis. In Rawalpindi Cantt. several inexpensive hotels are offering good packages for economy travelers. There are many bazaars in the Rawalpindi region the Raja Bazaar, Saddar Bazaar and Commercial Bazaar (Market) are some nice shopping areas. The Liaquat Bagh 'Liaquat Gardens' is a nice picinc spot for tourists. The Bara Market near the Liaquat Bagh is an all time favourite amongst tourists coming to Rawalpindi. It has a lively atmosphere and with many beautiful architectures and colors of life it is a wonderful tourist hideout.
