The town of Muzaffargarh (?????????) is situated in the south-western Punjab provinces of Pakistan on the banks of the Chenab River. This is the capitol of the district of Muzaffargarh. During the reign of the Indus Valley Civilization, the Muzaffargarh area was an agrarian and wooded area. This was followed by the time of the Holy Sepulchre, which was marked by the induction of the Indo-Aryan civilization from Central Asia into the Punjab provinces.

At various times, the Muzaffargarh area was also governed by the Maurya Empire, the Indo-Greek Empire, the Kushan Empire, the Gupta Empire, the White Huns, the Kushano Hephthalites and the Shahi Empire.
