This square (Chowk Yadgaar) is a busy place of the city. Lot of old buildings around. Gold Street (Sarafa Bazar), Peepal Mandi etc. are nearby. Once this was the Hyde Park of Peshawar but old icon was demolished.

Chowk Yadgar is one of the most famous places in Peshawar. It is around 200 meters from main GT road, Shabistan Cinema. Chowk Yadgar has been famous for political and other types of gatherings. The old Yadgar monument was replaced with newly built park style place.
