Brief History: Dera Ghazi Khan is a district in the Punjab province of Pakistan. Its capital is Dera Ghazi Khan city. The city was founded in 15th century by Amar, a Tribal Sardar of Mirani and named after Nawab Ghazi Khan Mirani, son of Nawab Haji Khan Mirani, a Balochi chieftain, who had declared independence from the Langah Dynasty’s Sultans of Multan. Together with two other Deras i.e. settlements,Dera Ismail Khan and Dera Fateh Khan, it gave its name to Derajat. Derajat eventually came into the possession of the British after the Sikh War in 1849 and was divided into two districts: Dera Ghazi Khan and Dera Ismail Khan. The district of Rajanpur was later carved out of the Dera Ghazi Khan district.
The old city of Dera Ghazi Khan was situated at the distance of 10 miles (16 km) towards east of the present city. In 1908, the old city of Dera Ghazi Khan was abolished due to heavy flood in the river Indus. Then the existing city of Dera Ghazi Khan came into being in the year 1910.
There are petroleum and gas reservoirs in district Dera Ghazi Khan at sites Rodho, Zindapir, Afiband, Dhodhak, etc. The Koh-e-Sulaiman Range constitutes a major part of this area, This range is full of natural deposits like marble and lime stone. A big cement plant DG Cement is also situated in Kofli Sattai, Tehsil Dera Ghazi Khan.
