Hadda, Pakistan

Hadda is a small village in the Punjab province of Pakistan. It is more than 300 years old and the native inhabitants speak the Jhang dialect of the Punjabi language. The area used to be savannah before allotment of lands in 1875 and construction of irrigation canals in 1905. The earliest bungalow built by the British in 1900 is also named after the village although it is about 5 km (3.1 mi) to the south along the south branch of the canal.

There are two mosques and Imam Bargah and people live a simple life. There is primary school for both boys and girls. The literacy rate remained static for many years after partition but has increased in recent years. The population is about 4,000. These people are actually the original inhabitants of Kirana Bar before the irrigation canals were constructed and new villages called chaks were created in the whole area by the British Government.
