Bhawana is the capital of Bhawana tehsil and a city in Punjab, Pakistan. It is situated on the bank of the Chenab River, bounded by Faisalabad, Jhang, and Chiniot, 3 other cities in Punjab.
History of Bhawana
Bhawana is believed to be one of the ancient cities of Pakistan. The Mughal Emperor Zahir-ud-din Babur also highlights the area in his book the Tuzk-e-Babari for its fine architecture and finely handcrafted jharoka windows of several of the old havelis (manors) and other buildings of the old/medieval town.
Geography and climate
The city is situated by the side of Jhang Chiniot road and on the left bank of the Chenab River. Recently, with a budget of 250 million rupees, a bridge from Bhawana to Kalri has been built over the Chenab river. Leaders of opposition political parties particularly Imran Khan and Billawal Bhutto have criticized the Chief Minister Punjab Shabaz Sharif for spending such a huge amount on a bridge to benefit CM’ owned Ramzan Sugar Mills. Its soil is very fertile and is among the greatest agricultural areas, and the city itself also depends considerably on agriculture to bolster its economy. It is located 37 kilometers from Chiniot, 50 kilometers from Faisalabad, 48 kilometers from Jhang and 70 kilometers from Sargodha. Its weather is much like the rest of Pakistan’s, with summer, spring, winter and autumn seasons. Its temperatures are usually moderate.
