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

exploration companies are also working in the surrounding area.
