Gujranwala Pakistani  Punjab

Gujranwala is a relatively recent creation in history. Other now smaller town in the vicinity for example Sohdara Amin Abad Wazir Abad and Ghakkar have older anticident than Gujranwala itself .Gujranwala -Punjab is famous for its Industry of Fan, air conditioner washing sanitary ceramic industry machine Gujranwala Pakistan. At the time Ahmad Shah Abdali Invaded India in 1774 .To engage the Marhata's he traveled from Lahore northwards to town of Shahdara,Sirai,Fazal Abad,Pul Shahdola,Amin Abad,Sirai Kachi, Ghakkar,Nazim Abad. Qazir Abad onward.

Transportation:

Gujranwala is a very busy city and transport is available 24 hours a day 365 days a year. one of Pakistan's most accessible cities and the only city in the country where one can find public and private transportation 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.Due to extensive road and rail links the city has flourished within the manufacturing and agricultural markets.

 

 

The origin of the name Gujranwala is shrouded in mists of time and one is forced to reffer again to the first gazetteer 1874. Gujranwala is known for its extensive production of sugarcane, melons and grains for international export. Gujranwala exports one of the world's finest quality varieties of rice. The Gujranwala city has set up several commercial and industrial centres allowing the manufacture of ceramics, fans, electrical switch gears, engineering tools, agricultural machinery, steel bars, cutlery, ceramics, crockery, iron safes, metal tool, utensils, textiles, woollen sweaters, bath room sanitary fittings, ceramic floor tiles, marble tiles and tannery production. Gujranwala city is the home of strong wrestlers and bodybuilders of the subcontinent, which has resulted in the nickname 'City of wrestlers' or Phelwana da shehar in Punjabi. for some reason the Jaat Tribe Gujar occuipied the land. They reach such dominance that the town came to be known as Gujranwala is majority of the Sahnsi people continued to cultivate the land but were weak.

Dr.Qureshi cites oral evidence from a resident and also cites inflection of the word Gujjar to support his conclusion " we , the inhabitant of Gujranwala " have two sounds of the letter Gaf- the soft letter and the hard leter. We pronounced Gujranwal with the soft one .The word Gujar " milkman " is pronounced with the hard Gaf and Gujrar Jaat with the soft Gaf therefore it is not unreasonable to accept the view that it is from Gujjars(milkman) that the citi got its name.
