Maps of Panjab

Here is a series of maps showing the changes in the boundaries of Panjab through the centuries. The maps of 1707, 1798 and 1836 show Panjab in pink. After annexation by the British in 1849, maps of Panjab show the princely states shaded yellow, while the rest of Panjab is shown as grey in the 1893 map and pink in 1909 map. After partition in 1947, Pakistani Panjab is shown as dark green, while the map of 1949 shows the princely state of Bahawalpur in Pakistani Panjab shaded light green. The yellow areas in the maps of 1949 and 1955 indicate the Patiala and East Punjab States Union (PEPSU) - a short-lived state of the former princely states. The grey areas in maps of 1949, 1955 and 1957 show the Himachal Union Territory in India. The map of 1967 shows the states in India as follows: Punjab as pink, Haryana as grey and Himachal Pradesh as purple. The last two maps show the doabs and landuse in Panjab.
