History


Burewala officially declared and know as city of Education.  Burewala derives its name from Chah Boreywala  which was established prior to 1912. Burewala is an old Mandi and situated on Dehli Multan Road River Sutlej a crosses Burewala near Jamlera and Sahuka. Derbar of Dewan Chawli Mashickh is also situated in Dewan Sahib at a distance of 18 km. from Burewala.In the very beginning it was just a jungle which was 'humanized' by local tribes called "Langrial". When the Pakpattan canal started its operations in this area, agriculture of the area developed and the jungle was cut to make cultivation fields. And so people started to settle in villages. As this area was in 'Eastern  Canal Division' so it was named village no. 439/EB (E.B.= Eastern Bar). In the Northern side of Burewala, there are still signs of an old water canal which is now called Sukh Bias.

There is no clear idea behind  the name Burewala. We have different ideas which have their respective logics. We discuss some reasons why Burewala is named Burewala.

1) This city is named Burewala after a person name Burha. He was, according to some people,'  Sikh', some say that he was Muslim and still some others claim he was Hindu. Anyhow, whatever was his religion it is most probably he after whose name this city got its name. Now one question arises where did this gentleman lived?
