Barnala has the unique Pharwari and Handiaya Bazaar which are the two main bazaars here. The streets in these bazaars are parallel to each other and have other streets cutting them at 90 degree angles. These perpendicular streets are a separate set of parallel streets. Overall the construction is like the streets and Avenues of New York.
This is the only city in Punjab that can boast of such a construction. There are also College Road, Purana Bazar, Sekha Road, and Katcha College Road where one can shop. These bazaars are famous for footwear and furniture. They have a number of shops that are lined with very competitive rates.
