Baddomalhi, bɑːdoʊmælee, is a city located 35 miles northeast of Lahore, Pakistan in Sialkot District. It is located at 31°59'0N 74°40'0E with an altitude of 217 metres (715 feet).[1] It is primarily an agricultural city producing rice. It is served by one railway station, the train's horn is blown every time it is coming to a stop at the station and can be heard throughout much of the city. The city is 3.14 miles west of the Indian border.

At night one can see the red lights of multiple Indian outposts situated along the border. There is one hospital in the city, but all trauma cases are sent to Narowal, which is 14.5 miles (approximately a 30 minutes drive) from Baddomalhi. The main market or bazaar is located along the city's primary dirt road which travels through the city. People mainly travel by motorcycle and foot throughout the city as many of the roads are too narrow to accommodate vehicular traffic. Much of the original city was founded during the time before the partition of India and Pakistan. The streets are very narrow, usually only wide enough to accommodate a few people walking by foot. The southwestern part of the city was constructed after the partition.

Prominent politician and close aide of Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Chaudhry Naseer Ahmad Malhi hailed from this village.
