Main Article Content
This article will throw light on unique cultural and geographical heritage of Bahawalpur, in the context of regional heritage. This place has pedigree in Ancient world, yet to discover its ancestor age. This region was integral part of Hakra civilization, which underwent Alexander and Hindus domination afterwards. Nevertheless, Bahawalpur sustains its importance when it was a Princely state, and even when it merged with Pakistan in 1954. Its culture is amalgamation of customs of urban and rural areas which also consist of plain and desert lives’ time-honored traditions. Geographically, it has three shads; it comprises desert, Bar or Pat (high land) and fertile land. All of these have their own norms, mores and ethnicities. But they are also silhouetted by a united culture of Bahawalpur. The adherence of Islam in day to day life and regional language (Sariki) are significantly important binding force of the natives of this vicinity.
