This website is dedicated to the promotion
and documentation of the Hindko language. Hindko is an Indo-Aryan
language spoken in northern Pakistan by about 5 million people.
It is the old language of the historic city of Peshawar. To this
very day, the melodic sounds of Hindko can still be heard in the
narrow streets and alleys of the colorful Hindko bazaar in the old
Hindko is recognized even by speakers of
its neighboring languages as a sweet language, well suited to reciting
poetry, singing love songs, or chatting among friends. From Peshawar
to Abbottabad to Muzzafarabad, Hindko is a thriving, vital language
used in every aspect of life by those who call it their mother-tongue.
As you step inside the Hindko bazaar, whether you are a visitor
or a resident, you are welcome.
