The Kissa Khwani Bazaar (or 'Bazaar of The Story-tellers') is a bazaar of Peshawar, in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (then N.-W.F.) province Gazetteer, traveller Lowell Thomas and Peshawar's British commissioner

Herbert Edwardes called it "the Piccadilly of Central Asia". Indian film actor Dilip Kumar was born in Qissa Khwani Bazaar on or about 11 December 1922. Actor Shah Rukh Khan's family still lives in the area. It was the site of the Qissa Khwani Bazaar massacre in 1930, when a large crowd of unarmed local protesters was crushed and fired upon by British armoured cars and soldiers.

During the region of Kanishka merchants used to come here, they used to do business at day time and at night they would go to an inn, sat around fire, sipping Qahwa and used to tell stories. Thus the bazar got its name "the Bazaar of Story Tellers".
