Why Burewala is called Burewala.
There is no clear idea behind the name Burewala. We have different ideas which have their respective logics. We discuss some reasons why Burewala is named Burewala.
1) This city is named Burewala after a person name Burha. He was, according to some people,' Sikh', some say that he was Muslim and still some others claim he was Hindu. Anyhow, whatever was his religion it is most probably he after whose name this city got its name. Now one question arises where did this gentleman lived? Again there are more than one place which are said to be his home at that time.
He lived in a hut at the place where now-a-days railway Station building exists.
Some other say that he lived where now-a-days 517/E.B. exists. This village is also called Old Bura or " Purana Boora". The people of this villages constructed a well with a diameter of 8 feet and named it after their ancestor so it was called " Chah Boorhay wala " ( Well of Burha). This well is now included in the P. I. Link canal. Due to this well the new city was named Burewala. At the time existence of Vehari District on I July, 1976.Burewala was upgraded as Sub Division.
