Sialkot is one of the ancient cities of Punjab. It is said to have been founded by Raja Sul of Pando dynasty after whose name it was called Sulkot, which subsequently changed to Sialkot. Sialkot District is bounded on the north-east by the Jammu& Kashmir state, on the north-west by rivers of Tavi and Chanab, which separate it from the Gujrat District, on the west and southeast by Gujranwala and Narowal District respectively. It is an irregular tract occupying the sub-mountainous portion of Rachna. The district is a plain, sloping down from the uplands at the base of the Himalayas to the level country in the south. Islam spread in this area when Hazrat Imam Ali ul Haq and Hazrat Pir Muradia came to this area. Allama Muhammad Iqbal (poet) was born in this city and his residential house is being used as Library now a days.
