History

 

Bahawalnagar once a fertile land irrigated with Ganga and Satluj rivers is the custodian of a centuries old civilization of the Hakrian complex which is even older than that of Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa. Authentic history of the district begins about 493-AD when Raja Deviaj of Rai dynasty came in the throne of Sindh. His capital was Alore.
Bahawalnagar was then known as Rojhan and was part of Punjab under the reign of Rai Sahsi II. Old name of Bahawalnagar was Rajhanwali/Ubbah. It was named Bahawalnagar in 1904 after Bahawal Khan-V, the ruler of the Bahawalpur state comprising the present districts of Bahawalpur, Bahawalnagar and Rahim Yar Khan.

 

The Bahawalnagar district is bounded on the north by Okara, Pakpattan and Vehari districts, on the west by Bahawalpur district, on the south by Indian state Bikanir and on the east by Ferozpur and Ganganagar districts of India.

 

Minchinabad is a Tehsil of district Bahawalnagar. It is bounded by India on its eastern side, Okara and Pakpattan districts on its north, Bahawalnagar Tehsil on its west and India on its south.
