Accessible via Allama Shabbir Usmani Road, Block 13-D, Gulshan-e-Iqbal was established in the early 1970s. Over the years, the block has evolved from a sparsely populated residential area to a hub of commercial activity.

Thinking about jazzing up your home, consider heading to Block 13-D where several furniture and home stores are located. There you can find a wide range of dining tables, bookshelves, jhoolas, bed sets, vanity tables and cupboards. Not to mention, these furniture are also made-to-order.

One of the main attractions of these stores is the fact they offer reasonably priced wedding package deals for bridal furniture bedroom set – an ideal offer for newly married couples.

Other than furniture, you can also find a wide variety of stores dealing in curtains, carpets and mirrors to spruce up your home and that too on a budget.

There is plenty of choice in and around the neighbourhood when it comes to satisfying the appetite. For desi treats, head to Kashif Foods, Meerath Kabab, Baba Biryani Restaurant and Al-Shaikh Restaurant where you can devour kabab parathas, biryani, haleem, chicken tikka, gola kababas and paratha rolls.

For fast food lovers, Pizza Point and Burger Lab are the go-to places where you can feast on delicious, juicy burgers and hot piping pizzas. And for those with a sweet tooth, a stop at Delhi Sweet Bakery is a must and grabs some fresh mithai, cakes and pastries on the go.

Walking through the neighbourhood, you will note the presence of well-maintained houses that have stood there for decades. Most of the houses located on the main road are increasingly repurposed and serve as commercial enterprises. An increasing number of banks, mosques, schools and wedding halls can also be found there, adding to the area’s appeal. Several grocery stores are located there, and cater residents’ daily requirements.

A few parks are also located in the vicinity where you can take a stroll or do mornings jog. In addition, Aladin Amusement Park, a popular recreational spot, is also few minutes’ drive away, where you can go with friends and family and enjoy rides on merry-go-round, ferris wheel, free fall, discovery, UFO ride, skater, bullet train, chairlift and many more.
