Khairpur Tamewali is a city and the capital of Khairpur Tamewali Tehsil, Bahawalpur District, Punjab, Pakistan.[1]


Khairpur Tamewali was known as Khairpur in the early 18th century. It was named after "Tommy", an Englishman who discovered a meteor which fell in early 1900 at the junction of the Sidhnai Mailsi Link river and the Bahawal canal.[citation needed] The meteor is still available at a museum in London, England.[citation needed] The name became Khairpur Tamewali with the passage of time.
