Khushab

Khushab is a combination of two Persian words “Khush” meaning sweet or tasty and “aab” meaning water. A common belief is that the Persain invaders, from the west, first used the word “Khush-aab” in admiration of the sweet and tasty water found in the historical city situated on the bank of Jehlum River. With time the city started to be known as Khushab. It is very interesting thing that presently Khushab is famous due to its high flying sweet “dhoda”.[1] khushab info – blogs  pot.com

During the anarchic period

Sumera Malik In Khushab

During the anarchic period which succeeded the disruption of the
Mughal empire, this remote region became the scene of Sikh and
Afghan incursions. In 1757 a force under Nur-ud-din Bamizai, dis-
patched by Ahmad Shah Durrani to assist his son Timur Shah in
repelling the Marathas, crossed the Jhelum at Khushab, marched
up the left bank of the river, and laid waste the three largest towns
of the District. Bhera and Miani rose again from their ruins, but only
the foundations of Chak Sanu now mark its former site. About the
same time, by the death of Nawab Ahmadyar Khan, Khushab also
passed into the hands of Raja Salamat Rai.[4] During the anarchic period
