Sialkote

Sialkot (Punjabi and Urdu: سيالكوٹ‎‎) is a city in Punjab, Pakistan. Sialkot is Pakistan's 12th most populous city,[5] and is part of north-east Punjab — one of Pakistan's mostly highly industrialized regions.[6] Sialkot is believed to be site of ancient Sagala, a city razed by Alexander the Great in 326 BCE, and then made capital of the Indo-Greek kingdom by Menander I in the 2nd century BCE – a time during which the city greatly prospered as a major centre for trade and Buddhist thought.[7]
