It is one of the villages situated on the western borders of Punjab province adjacent to KPK province. Its population is about 3000 people . It is a comparatively developed village as basic facilities like electricity, telephone, metallic road, internet, schools, water supply system and sewerage system are provided to the inhabitants of this village. It is also a well-planned village situated on a 40 feet wide (18' metallic) road. A 30' main street runs east to west through the village by equally dividing the entire village into two parts. Three other streets run north to south crossing the main street at 90°. There are four mosques including a grand mosque (Jamae Masjid or Waddi Maseet) situated in this settlement. The scene of river Kurram alongside bela jungle give beautiful look to this historical village. Khaglanwala is a hub of different routs coming from various villages situated on other side of the River Kurram to reach Isa Khel city.


The name “Khaglanwala” was given due to the tree “Khagal”[ English: Tamarisk, Punjabi: Okan, Urdu: Farash, Pashto/Baochi : Ghaz] which were found there in large number in the past. But, at present, hardly a few old Khagal trees exist there.


Present day Khaglanwala was rehabilitated on a nearby land after destruction of old Khaglanwala some 110 years ago due to erosion by River Kurram. This Village was founded by the people of Mammun Khel clan of Isa Khel Niazies after their defeat in the battle with Khan Zaman Zako Khel and Sardar Jehan Khan Popalzai, the commander of Ahmad Shah Abdali, in 1748. It is the center of Khizar Khel, Ahmad Khel, Azeem Khel, Sarwarkhel and Naurang Khel branches of Mammun Khel Tribe. The village became a Union Council in the sixties due to its central position in the area.


Local people speak Saraiki(سرائكى) Language.
