Punjabi History

Historically, the Punjab region has been dominated and ruled by such vastly different ethnic makeups, that the current communities experience ethnic diversity. The Punjab region has been home to many ancient Punjab civilizations and the territory has been fought over throughout history. The Greek army of Alexander the Great of Macedonia invaded the Punjab region in 326 BCE successfully overtaking the rule of King Porus.

The Greek domination over the Punjab region resulted in an outside influence previously never experienced by the Punjabs. The early Greek invasions to the Punjab region later influenced the culture and early forms of Punjabi. In the following centuries, parts of the Punjab region were ruled by the Maurya, Mughal and Sikh empires. During this span, the Punjab region experienced a one thousand year rule by the Muslims.

Punjab in Persian means “the land of five rivers”. The rivers in the Punjab region are the Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Beas and Sutlej. The Punjab region covers more land from Pakistan than it does from India. Punjabi is a term that refers to both the language and the inhabitants of the Punjab region. The Punjab region is respected for the positive agricultural benefit that it supplies to citizens of both Pakistan and India. The Punjab region is broken down into the following regions: West Punjab, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Chandigarh. Most inhabitants of the Punjab Region practice Hinduism, Islam or Sikhism.
