Burewala is a city of Vehari District in southern Punjab.
The exact origin of Burewala’s name is unknown; however, there are different theories. One theory is that the city is named after a person named “Burha” who was a ‘Sikh’. The village is also called “Old Bura” or “Purana Boora.” The people of this village constructed a well and named it after their ancestor so it was called “Chah Boorhay wala” (Well of Burha). Due to this well the new city was named Burewala. In July 1976, Burewala was upgraded as a subdivision.
Burewala is the birthplace of the Bollywood legend, Rajesh Khanna. In sports, World renowned former fast bowler of Pakistan cricket team, Waqar Younis ( known as “Burewala Express”) is also from Burewala.
