Culture and history

Things to do - Chakwal

Chakwal is a fascinating place because of its distinct culture and long history. Chakwal is known for its rich culture, art, history, and lavish surroundings. Chakwal, which was once known as a picnic destination for the Mughal Dynasty and British Lords, still provides visitors a distinct scenery.

Shalwar Kameez is the most common attire. Some people also wear Turbans or Dhoti although it's not very popular. Over a shalwar kameez, well-off men frequently wear a Koti or coat. Women may choose to cover themselves with a 'Burqa,' a huge black voluminous garment. The most common footwear is sandals, Chapels, or flip-flops. Many non-Muslim minorities, particularly Hindus, lived in this area before the partition, and many of them went to India following the separation. The Hindu culture has affected this region, just as it has influenced the rest of the country. At weddings, large dowries are given to the bridesmaids, and a Mehndi ritual is held. The 'Gharoli bharna' ritual, in which the boy's sister-in-law or other close female relatives visit another relative's home to fill a mud pot with water for blessings, is also popular at weddings. Families and castes continue to have a major impact. Until now, the Awan, Chaudhary, and Rajput clans have dominated the region. People prefer to marry within their own caste, hence intercaste marriage is avoided. The caste system is so entrenched in certain communities that each caste has its own mosque.
