The impressive structure, designed as Bab-e-Khyber, a popular landmark in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP), saw a huge crowd. Most of the shops were selling leather products, from cozy jackets to gloves and caps.

“The pavilion represents the rich cultural heritage of the country. The food stalls have impressed me the most,” said Shakeel Imam, a Pakistani expatriate. The women folk were seen flocking jewellery and shoe shops.
