About The City

Okara became Tehsil Headquarters in 1918 when a network of canal irrigation was completed in the area. As on July 1, 1982, Okara District began operating as a district. It covers a space of 4,377 sq. km. The Lahore-Multan Grand Trunk Road connects it to Lahore at a distance of around 120 kilometer’s.
The name of the wild plant, Okanwala, was the origin of the name Okara. The current main city was constructed by the British Raj in six blocks, each of which contained identically sized and shaped residences. Such meticulously planned town planning had never been seen before. Apart from the Muslims, Okara had a sizable Punjabi Hindu and Sikh population until India was partitioned in August 1947. During the partition, the Muslims from East Punjab came to this region while the Hindus and Sikhs of Okara have to abandon their ancestral homes and relocate to India.
