The Chakwal City

The city was founded during the era of Mughal emperor Zaheer-ud-Din Baber. Alexander the great also passed through this region in 326 B.C. One of the Muslim Scientists Al-Beruni came to this valley and stayed here for some time. During his stay at Katas, he not only learned Sanskrit but also performed various geographic experiments and successfully measured the radius of earth. Chakwal district is rich in natural resources such as coal, limestone, gypsum, salt, petroleum and other valuable minerals. Three cement plants with total production capacity of 24000 tons per day are already operational. Some textile factories and oil exploration companies are also working in the surrounding area.
