History

The present city is more than 500 years old. Some parts of the city fortification and several of its gates still exist. The city is built on a mound that is believed to be an original Harappan or Indus Valley Civilisation site. There has been little excavation. The last excavation was carried out in 1978 by the Archeology Department, Government of Pakistan. Among other objects, coins dating back to Alexander the Great's time (c. 323 B.C.) were discovered at the site. A large area of unexcavated mounds extends to the south-west of the city where ancient bricks and shards of pottery can be found on the surface. Popular legend holds that the city has been destroyed nine times in the past. The present name is popularly believed to have been derived from 'Chunni', name of a daughter of Raja Todar Mal, the dewan or revenue minister to Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great. Little historical evidence of this belief has been documented. People of nearby villages call the city Chooni in local dialect of Punjabi (source wikipedia)
