Urdu Bazaar (Urdu: اُردو بازار) is a market dedicated to Bookstores. During the Mughal Empire, the market close to the royal fort in Delhi (the Red Fort) was called Urdu Bazaar ("Army/camp Market", from the Turkic word ordu, "army"), and it may be from this that the phrase Zaban-e-Urdu ("the language of the army/camp") derives. Later the market had mostly bookstores and now any market dedicated to books, especially Urdu language, is called as Urdu Bazaar.
There are several Urdu Bazaar in South Asia:
- Urdu Bazaar (Islamabad)
- Urdu Bazaar (Karachi)
- Urdu Bazaar (Lahore)
- Urdu Bazaar (Multan)
- Urdu Bazaar (Rawalpindi)
- Urdu Bazaar (Sargodha)
