Haveli Lakha is part of Depalpur Tehsil and is administratively subdivided into three Union councils. Haveli is famous for its Reed Stools and Hubble Bubble which are sent to numerous other cities of Punjab and even to Karachi.
According to the 2009 census it had a population of 141,741. Haveli Lakha has been politically significant as it has produced people of such high stature as Mian Muhammad Yasin Wattoo (former Federal Minister of Finance from village Jamal Kot), Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo (former Chief Minister of Punjab from village Wasaway Wala).
There is the tradition about the name of Haveli Lakha; the town was founded by Lakha who had his Mansion (Punjabi/Urdu: حویلی ) here. The passengers used to stay there. As this mansion was near then Delhi-Multan Road, so it got the name “the Haveli of Lakha” which gradually became “Haveli Lakha”.
