Culture and Heritage

Things to do - Bahawalpur

Bahawalpur has a rich history and is a popular destination for historians and archaeologists. Embroidery, cotton, silk, carpets, and extremely delicate ceramics are all popular in Bahawalpur. Outside Farid Gate in Bahawalpur, the Punjab Small Industries Corporation (PSIC) has constructed a Craft Development Center for the Cholistan area, where handicrafts made in the Cholistan can be purchased.

People from many cultures in Cholistan, Great Bahawalpur State, and Punjab live in the city. Haryanvi, Bagri, Majhi, and Riyasti are some of the other widely spoken languages. These dialects are a blend of several other Punjabi dialects and are spoken in different districts. For example, a large portion of the people in the desert speak a Punjabi Rajhistani mix, which accounts for 9% of the overall population. Balochi is also only spoken by a small minority of the population. The inhabitants of Bahawalpur, being Punjabis, are similar to the Punjabis of Rajasthan. They have a tall, muscular frame with sharp features. The locals lived in big round-shaped mud and grass homes. The majority of these huts are built on the tops of sandhills. They follow a nomadic lifestyle, moving from place to place based on weather, food, and water availability. Their lifestyle is similar to that of rural folks. The Chandani, Chachar, Mehr, Lar, and Bohar are the principal clans.
