Rawalpindi city is explained in following words by Wikipedia.

The word "Rawalpindi" consists of two Punjabi words; Rawal, and Pindi. The origin of the name may derive from the combination of two words Rawal, meaning "lake" in Punjabi, and Pind, meaning "village." The combination of the two words thus means "The village of the lake". Other sources have posited a Sanskrit origin of the city's name

Rawalpindi is also very close to Taxila city which is also a historical hub of Punjab. Rawalpindi got the boost when Islamabad capital city was established. Now Rawalpindi has become a cultural and historical hub of Punjab. The Buddha fasting which is displayed in a museum of London was first discovered in Rawalpindi.
Rawalpindi got so much popularity due to Islamabad which is the capital of Pakistan. Rawalpindi and Islamabad are connected with each other now. Both cities are very close to each other and the distance is also no more due to Metro Bus. Metro Bus connects the major stops and shopping areas of both cities and ticket of this bus is also very low. Now everyone can travel in it and can reach anywhere in both cities.
