Rajanpur (Urdu: راجن پُور), is a city and the headquarters of Rajanpur District in the far southwestern part of Punjab, Pakistan. The district lies entirely west of the Indus River. it is a narrow, 32 kilometres (20 mi) to 64 kilometres (40 mi) wide strip of land sandwiched between the Indus River on the east and the Sulaiman Mountains on the west. It had a population of 42,986 in 1998.
Rajanpur was founded in 1732-33 by Makhdoom Sheikh Rajan Shah, from whom the city's name derives. Sheikh Rajan established Rajanpur in an area that he had captured from Nahar tribesmen. The settlement remained a largely unimportant village until flooding in 1862 severely damaged the nearby district headquarters at Mithankot - leading to the transfer of government offices to Rajanpur. A small dispensary clinic was established in Rajanpur that same year. Rajanpur was then constituted as a municipality in 1873.
