The present day Malakand Division consists of 09 Districts i.e. Malakand, Swat, Dir Lower and Upper, Buner, Shangla, Tribal District Bajaur and recently bifurcated Chitral Upper & Lower. It is the largest division in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and has its borders with Afghanistan, Gilgit Baltistan, Peshawar, Mardan and Hazara Divisions.

Today’s Malakand Division with an area of 32007 Sq.Kms having population of 8.7 million once used to be mainly comprising four princely states i.e. Swat, Dir, Chitral and Khanate of Khar besides, Protected territory of Malakand. The rulers were known as Wali-e-Swat, Nawab of Dir, Mehtar of Chitral and Khans of Khar and Nawagai.

The region in the past had witnessed worst kind of militancy, historic displacement and devastating floods/earthquake and once known as Switzerland of Pakistan had gone to the mercy of religious warlords and militants as well as natural calamities.

The whole world stood up behind the government of the time and through series of operations and a number of interventions successfully materialized the slogan of “Build, Back and Better” and rebuild the lives in the region within a short span of time.

I am delighted and feel proud to say that today’s Malakand Division offers a complete secure environment, in which the rule of law prevails. The system of governance is much better and improved where public services have been restored and the potential of region in economic growth has been fully tapped. Tourism industry is completely revived and last year we hosted 2.5 million local and foreign tourists. The government is committed to ensure that peace, love and harmony rules supreme in the region. The restoration of infrastructure is in its full swing and in the coming months the region would again be welcoming the tourists to its heavenly tourist destinations. I wish success to every endeavors of all stakeholders in bringing peace and prosperity to the area.

     It gives me immense pleasure to serve Malakand, the largest Division of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. All its districts attract the tourists to explore its scenic beauty, snowcapped mountains, rivers and green meadows and to appreciate the hospitality of its peace loving people.

     Malakand Division has a rich historical background. The Buddhist, Greek and Ghandara Civilization can be seen in Barikot, Odigram, Gulkada and other places.

     The division possesses strategic position in the province due to its proximity as it touches Karakuram Highway at Besham, Afghan border with Dir, Bajaur and Chitral shares strategic Wakhan strip. From tourism perspective, Malakand division links the northern areas with rest of the country. The Districts Administration are putting all its efforts to provide better services to the public which has improved the governance system. The tourists across the country in general and the globe in particular can easily witness the rich cultural diversity like Shandoor Polo festival, Kalash and Broghil festivals in Chitral, Malam Jabba Snow Festival and Kalam Festival in District Swat.

Malakand Division is comprising 09 districts i.e. Swat, Shangla, Buner, Malakand, Dir Upper & Lower, Chitral Upper & Lower and Bajaur Tribal District with a total area of 32007Kms having population of 8.7 million. Formerly, the districts were princely states of Swat, Dir, Chitral and Malakand Protected Area (Malakand Agency). The States were merged in Pakistan by the Government of Pakistan in 1969 and were declared as Malakand Division.

It lies in the north of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa touching Karakuram Highway at Besham, Afghan border with Dir & Chitral and the strategic Wakhan strip is bordering Chitral. The mentioning of this area is found in the ancient Greek accounts & by other historians. It was a center of Aryan and later on rich Ghandhara civilizations before the Muslim rulers. Alexander the Great, king of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedonia passed through this route to India in 327 B.C, attacking the biggest cities of the area, Massaga (Chakdara), Bazira (Barikot) & Ora (Odigram) and faced tough resistance. However, he could not survive for longer. This area also witnessed the invasion of Sakas(nomadic Iranian people), Kushans (syncretic empire) & white Huns (a race of largely nomadic peoples who were a part of the Hunnic tribes of Central Asia), this region also remained under the influence of Ashoka of Maurian dynasty. The flourishing of Buddhism had genesis in the reign of Ashoka as he adopted Buddhism in the later part of his life. The area then had more than 1400 monasteries and 18000 monks in different parts and was a prominent center of Ghandhara civilization.
