~~ Iftaar at Chawk Bazaar ~~

Chowk Bazaar was one of the most famous business and social meeting centers of Dhaka in the Mughal period. Even after 400 years it is still famous as before. It is one of Dhaka's old town market and it formed in the place where other old markets once were. King Maan Singh protested for the country on behalf of Mugal kingdom. In 1602 he transferred the head office in Bawal to the present Central Prison and also the Mughal Durgo, that’s how Chowk Bazaar formed. Currently Chowk Bazar is a legendary marketplace for "traditional" and "Shahi" iftaar (Snacks items for breaking the ramadan fasting) items and crowded market.
