Bahawalpur, a city in Pakistan, exudes regal charm with its stunning architecture, notably the majestic Derawar Fort standing proudly against the desert backdrop. Its rich cultural heritage is echoed in the intricate designs of the Bahawalpur Museum, offering a captivating glimpse into the region's history and artistry.


The history of Bahawalpur traces back to the 18th century when it was founded by Nawab Bahawal Khan I. It emerged as a princely state under the British Raj and maintained its autonomy until Pakistan's independence in 1947. Known for its strategic location along trade routes, Bahawalpur thrived as an influential state, fostering art, architecture, and cultural richness. Its rulers, particularly the Abbasi family, contributed significantly to its development, leaving a legacy of architectural marvels like the Derawar Fort and the Bahawalpur Museum. In 1955, Bahawalpur was integrated into West Pakistan, now part of modern-day Pakistan.
