A Short History of Lakki Marwat
Lakki Marwat (Pashto/Urdu: لکی مروت) is one of the Southern Districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan. It was created as an administrative district on July 1, 1992, prior to which it was a Tehsil of Bannu District.
Lakki was first called by the name of “Thal Daman”, which means an open sandy plain. The first evidence of civilization in the plains of Thal Daman and the spread of Islam in Bannu is indicated by the graves of Ashaab on the left bank of the Kurram River.There are different Stories about the name of Lakki Marwat.
One story says that long ago a battel was fought between the Marwat tribe and Wazir and Marwat tribe started to unite an army. The army was huge enough that people say almost 1 Lac Marwat. Then the word “Lac” become Lakki therefore, it is called Lakki Marwat.
Third theory about lakki marwat:
In Afghanistan a tribe was living in about 1556 the name of the tribe is marwat tribe,during the Akbar-e-Azam Lord time about 1556-1605
Another story links this name to one Lakki Ram or Lukko Ram, a Hindu trader who is considered to be the original founder of this town. Yet another source claims that the town was initially known as Ihsan Pur.
The second part of the District’s name comes from the warrior tribe of Marwat who has inhabited the entire area for several centuries.
Lakki derives from Pali language which is equivalent of Laksmi, goddess of beauty and fortune. The last part of its name is emarta’watta means source of elixir. Over time it changed to Marwat. It is a metaphor for the Gambila River.
