The town of Gujrat is of modern origin, but

declared as the Khita-e-Yunan ((part of Greece) of Punjab.
In 2003, the Punjab government, led by then-Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervez Elahi, established UOG on the vacant land adjoining the shrine of saint Hafiz Muhamad Hayat, who lived in the Mughal period.
