Attock District is situated in the Northwest of the Punjab province of Pakistan. Attock has been given the district status in 1904 after the merger of Talagang tehsil from the Jhelum District and the Pindigheb, Fatehjang and Attock tehsils from Rawalpindi District of British Raj. The first name of the city was Campbellpur after Sir Campbell who named the city of Campbellpur to the southeast of Attock Town. The name of the district was changed to its original Attock in 1978.
Attock history starts dating back to 327 BC when Alexander the Great crossed the Indus River with the ambition of conquering India. His first encounter was with Raja Hasti, who ruled over the land between the Khyber Pass and the river Attock or Atak called Gandhara. Hasti was killed during a siege of his palace, which lasted for thirty days. Alexander secured a difficult victory. Taxila proved an easier victory, as its monarch Ambhi not only surrendered without offering any resistance but even joined forces with Alexander.
