The district of Khanewal was created in 1985 out of the two tehsils of Multan District, namely Kabirwala and Mian Channu. Its boundaries meet the districts of Jhang and Toba Tek Singh on the North, Sahiwal on the East, Vehari District on South and with Multan on the West.


Historically Khanewal is an old city having its earliest foundations laid by the British Empire owing to its importance as a railway junction. The city was a junction of the Wazirabad -Khanewal railway line and provided a connection to the city of Karachi via Multan. Its straight roads show that it is a well planned town by the British people. The earliest settlers are said to be the Dahas like Khan Haibat Khan Daha,and Khatters like sardar Iftikhar Ahmed Khan Khatter who have the 'Khan' in their names and the city was named after them as Khan-e-wal. Khanewal was declared district in 1985.
