History of Kamalia City
Reportedly, Kamalia existed even before king Alexander. According to folklore, Alexander attempted to conquer the walled city in the morning when its residents opened the entrance door for a walk. He then attacked the city. However, the invader then moved to some other regions.
As the nearby city of Harappa is likewise prehistoric, it seems that Kamalia was a part of a prehistoric civilization that remained safe from nature’s wreath. At the city’s highest point, the “Iqbal Bazar,” the old constructions tell the tale of an earlier progressive period.
Assets of Migrated Populations
Many of the Hindu and Sikh population’s hidden items have been discovered decades after they left the area as a result of the 1947 Partition. Some generous families donated their possessions to Government’s trust. One of those assets is Government P.S.T. (Praim Sati Trust) Institution, the only government college in Kamalia besides Govt. Technical College of Commerce.

Summers are typically very hot, with highs that can reach 40 degrees, followed by the monsoon, which has significantly less rain than the surrounding regions, the lovely autumn, and the cold and foggy winters. The overflow of Ravi is the most serious climatic hazard to Kamalia, but fortunately, it is a rare phenomenon.
