Oddly Amusing Names of Places In Karachi

I was resting in Aram Bagh, wondering whether I should try someplace different. So I hopped into my car and drove to Lalu Khait, to meet Lalu. After wasting a couple of hours, I found out that he is at Shanti Nagar, having a moment of peace.

After that, I needed a place with some life to it. Therefore, I made a beeline for Disco Mor, where I danced so much, I wore my shoes out!

Yup, the places in Karachi has some weirdly amusing names! I was born and raised in Karachi. Yet I always find the names for the places either confusing or oddly funny. Here is the list below:


1. Khadda Market

My assumption is there used to be a big Khadda ( Hole ) over there, where people used to sell stuff. Hence, named Khadda Market.

I suppose it’s high time to change the name. Specially since the roads are now finely paved.

2. Soldier Bazar

As goes the name, ready-made soldiers available here.
