The historical city of Kamalia is situated at the bank of river Ravi.
The history discloses that the town was established prior to the
times of Alexander the great. Preliminary it was named as Kot Kamal
in the honour of the most prominent personality Kamal Khan who was
the head of the Lakhera Kalan of Kharals. It is one of the oldest
cities in the Punjab Province having an old mosque of Jahangiri
period. It has many historical places like shrine of Hazrat Baba
Fazil Dewan, Dargahi Shah, Syed Shabbir Ahmed Shah of Dholar Sharif,
Saint of Qdir Bakhsh Sharif. The land of the Tehsil is plane and
most of land is under cultivation. The land is very fertile, wheat,
sugar cane, rice and cotton etc. are the main crops of the Tehsil.
Generally the inhabitants of Tehsil are agriculturists while the
business of poultry in the shape of poultry forms in different part
of Tehsil is graded at No. 2 in the whole Punjab. Furthermore, the
city of Kamalia is famous at the national level due to its Khaddar
and hand made carpets.

take all necessary measures to do so.
TMA Kamalia has launched a special campaign to remove all the
temporary/permanent encroachments in both Cities of Kamalia &
