Gujranwala Map





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.
The Gujranwala city is presently important because of its industrial base that was rebuilt after the Hindu-Muslim riots of the pre-independence period. After a phase of severe economic crisis and confusion, the city gained back its glory. Some of the important industrial outputs of Gujranwala include sanitary fittings, electrical fans, sanitary ware, household appliances, ceramics products, hosiery products, textile items, yarns, light engineering products, carpets, pray mats, wooden and plastic furniture, and pottery.
