In early 1990s the city flourished when Mr. Nawaz Sharif establish an industrial zone in the west of Lahore. Latterly Mr. Nawaz sharief select vicinity of the town to build a palace for his residence. So Raiwind palace become the residence of Shariff family located in Jati Umra near Raiwind, Lahore.
