FAISALABAD

The city was founded by the British in 1892 by Sir Charles James Lyall for whom it was originally named Lyallpur (Lieutenant Governor of Punjab (1887-1892) in acknowledgement of his contributions in the process of colonization of the area). Prior to the British making the area into an urban center, it largely consisted of various villages. The city-center of Lyallpur (Faisalabad) was designed by Capt. Poham Young, C. I. E. to model the British Flag (Union Jack), with a large clock tower in the center and eight bazaars around the clock tower. The construction of various canals allowed the area to be irrigated. After the founding of the city, people were invited to the city with promises of land if they were to work it. This allowed the city to grow rapidly.

In 1977 the name of the city was changed to Faisalabad in honor of King Faisal of Saudi Arabia who had been assassinated.
 

Faisalabad is the third largest city in Pakistan. It has an estimated population of almost 2 million citizens. It is an important center for transport and production and is located in the Punjab province. Faisalabad is west of Lahore.
