Tulamba is more than 2,500 years old, local legend holding that Tulamba existed in the time of Noah.

Archaeological digs have uncovered five distinct layers. The first belongs to the Moi tribe. The remaining four belong to Greek, Sasani, Budh, Hindu and Muslim civilizations. The coins of several governments were found here, from that of Aplodots Sir Megas to that of Muhammad Ghauri.

The ruins of the older city are one kilometre from the current city. They are in a poor condition due to rain and neglect, yet their bricks are still visible. When Dr. Sayyed Zahid Ali Wasti visited Tulamba in 1967, he saw the ruins spread over an area of several miles, including a walled fort and a very high tower, with a three thousand year old protective trench around the fort, which was renovated in 1988 using trenchers to repair the damaged sections. He described the walls as beautifully plastered with mud, and floors that were not solid, but most of his description is now outdated as the ruins have since been further destroyed and eroded.

Religious significance[edit]

Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the First Sikh Master came here during his Udasi (Travels). Guru Har Rai, the Seventh Sikh Master, sent a masand (Preacher) to preach Sikhism to the local people of this area.

The history of Muslims begins with Muhammad bin Qasim when he came to Tulamba on his way to Multan. The place he passed is now known as Qasim Bazar.

Military history[edit]

Because the forces coming from North and West had to pass through Tulamba to get to the famous Multan the people of Tulamba encountered many armies. Alexander the Great came to Tulamba when he invaded the Indian sub-continent. At that time Tulamba was ruled by the Moi people. They were very brave and courageous, and Alexander faced difficulties here.

The ancestor of the Mughals, Taimur-e-Lang, also invaded Tulamba, at that time called Tulma.

Sher Shah Suri built a fort in the center of the city. The boundary wall and some parts of his building are still present. The Girls Higher Secondary School and the offices of the Town Committee are present in the Fort.
