Faisalabad Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 21 photos

Industrial Capital of Pakistan

Faisalabad formerly known as 'Lyallpur' city is the third largest city of Pakistan with an estimated population around 1,977,246 in 1998.

It is situated in the North Eastern Part of Pakistan. Faisalabad is in a cotton and wheat growing Area.

It is also an important transportation and commercial center, especially for grains, cloth, and ghee (clarified butter). Manufactures include textiles, pharmaceuticals, chemical fertilizer, bicycles, textile machinery, hosiery, flour, sugar, vegetable oil, and soap.

The city was founded by Sir James Lyall c.1895 and named in his honor. Punjab Agricultural University, several colleges affiliated with the University of Punjab, and numerous experimental farms and cattle-breeding stations are in Faisalabad.

It is still emerging as a modern city of 21st century but nowdays it is going through a phase when places change from big villages to modern cities and it can be seen from all the buildings and sites in Faisalabad. This is one of the interesting features of this city.

I visited this city thrice this year. Now lets continue our virtual trip to Pakistan's Third largest city.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A true example how Pakistanicities converted from bigger villages to main cities.
  • Cons:Industrial city, very few sight seeing places, In comparision with other Pakistani cities there is not much history of this city.
  • In a nutshell:Its the thrid largest city of Pakistan and but it not something must see. If you are travel by train then u may add one day trip to Faisalabad.

    Useful information (as about saving the stomach...), but we would like to see even more about the city and its sightseeings...
