Chakwal in the eyes of history

History of Chakwal

Chakwal was given the status of Tehsil headquarter by the British in 1881 and functioned as a subdivision of Jehlum district for more than a century when it was awarded the status of district in 1985.The District has a total population of 1083725 spread over four subdivisions of Chakwal , Talagang ,Choa Saiden Shah and Kallar Kahar with further subdivision into 68 union councils. 88% of the whole population resides in rural areas where as the district has an area of 6524 square kilometers .The district can boast of rich mineral reserves in the form of oil & gas , coal , salt ,lime stone and marble
The district is emerging as hub for cement production where industry is flourishing at a fast pace. Military service is the cherished career for the youth but a considerable number is pursuing multi-disciplinary higher education also. The current literacy rate of the district is estimated to be 76% which confers upon it the status of 6 most literate district in the Punjab and 11 in Pakistan.

Geography of distt. Chakwal

Chakwal is located in the Dhanni region of the Pothohar Plateau in northern Punjab, Pakistan. The Pothohar Plateau (also spelled Potwar or Potohar) (Urdu: سطح مرتفع پوٹھوہار) was the home of the ancient Soan valley civilization, which is evidenced by the discovery of fossils, tools, coins, and remains of ancient archaeological sites. The Indus Valley civilization flourished in this region between the 23rd and 18th centuries BC. Some of the earliest Stone Age artefacts in the world have been found on the plateau, dating from 500,000 to 100,000 years. The crude stone recovered from the terraces of the Soan testify to human endeavour in this part of the world from the inter-glacial period.

The Stone Age people produced their equipment in a sufficiently homogeneous way to justify their grouping. Around 3000 BC, small village communities developed in the Pothohar area, which led to the early roots of civilization.

The people of Pothohar speak Pothohari. However, the people of Chakwal and the Dhanni area (now known as Chakwal Tehsil) in particular do not speak Pothohari and are ethnologically not regarded as Potoharis. They speak a distinctive Chakwali or Dhanni dialect of Punjabi, which is closer to Shahpuri, a dialect spoken in the Shahpur-Salt Range area which also has a slight element of Saraiki.
