Sargodha is administrative center of Sargodha District. The name Sargodha has its origins in the words Sar (meaning pond) and Godha (meaning sadhu). It is an agricultural trade centre with various industries. It is Pakistan’s best citrus-producing area. Sargodha is one of the few planned cities in Pakistan. Pakistan’s largest airbase, PAF Base Mushaf (formerly PAF Base Sargodha), is located here. During the1965 Indo Pak War, PAF Base Sargodha was a major target of Indian aircraft. The citizens of Sargodha fearlessly faced the numerous air raids. In 1966, recognising this courage, the Government of Pakistan awarded the city of Sargodha with the award of Hilal-e-Istaqlal. It is also known as “The City of Shaheens (Eagles)”.
