Gujranwala is an important city of Pakistan, which is located in the Pakistani Punjab. The history of Gujranwala dates back to some several centuries and the earliest records were those given by Huen Tsang, the Chinese-Buddhist traveler who described the city as being the capital of a place, drained by five rivers.
Though Gujranwala has been in existence since many years, the recent historical period after the demise of the last powerful Mughal emperor, Aurangzab accounts for the Sikh stronghold in the region.The community is prevalent to this day. Charat Singh, a Sikh clan leader established the Gujranwala, which was later occupied by Mahan Sing, followed by the renowned Maharjah Charat Singh.
After the death of Ranjit Sigh Gujranwala in 1840, the place was for a short time ruled by the Jagirdars or landlords before being annexed by the British Taj in1849.
