Chawkbazar, Chattogram

Chawkbazar is located at the heart of Chattogram City. This area rightfully encapsulates the spirit of Chattogram due to its abundance of commerce, nature, culture, and history. It is a mosaic of educational institutions, commercial spaces, and residential areas. Chawkbazar is the no.16 ward of Chattogram City Corporation that accommodates over 200,000 people.

Chawkbazar is a city of rich history. Once regarded as Police Fari, it is now a bustling city replete with trade and commerce. During the British period, it was a place of rendezvous for merchants and traders to commence their day-to-day business. The name itself resonates with the glorious past of the trade and marketing that catapulted in the area.

The city evolved, and so did the people. But the essence of the past still lingers there within old buildings, narrow streets, and age-old shops. However, the commercial core of the city is still alive and teeming with more trade and commerce. Textile is a big market in this area. Beyond that, you will find electronics, spices, and household items at an affordable price.

Chawkbazar has another identity other than trade and commerce. It is one of the prime educational hubs filled with prestigious schools predating Bangladesh's liberation. Some noteworthy institutions are Chittagong Government High School, Government Hazi Mohammad Mohsin College, and Chattogram College.

Even though it is stocked with urban facilities, Chawkbazar has that traditional neighborhood connection, which is lost in many areas. The residential areas are often buzzing for hangouts and gatherings. The tea stalls, street food stalls, and eateries are seen to be abuzz with discussions of either politics or cricket.
