Murree is great city of Pakistan. People from all over the country come here to see its beauti, specially in the season of Summer. Its situated near capital city of Islamabad.

Murree is a hill station, full of natural ceneries, greenary. It is a cold city, even sometimes with in summer one need to use blanket. Famous places are Mall and Kashmir Point.

There are some other places in the sorrounding to view, including Bhorban, Nathya Gali, Ghora Gali, Ayubia, Pathreyata etc. I think everybody should visit Murree to see the natural beauti of Pakistan.

Murree (hills and city) (Urdu: مری) is a popular hill station and a summer resort, especially for the residents of Islamabad, and for the cities of the province of Punjab, Pakistan.

Murree is one of the largest resort towns in the Galyat area of Pakistan, and is the capital city of Murree tehsil (which is an administrative division of the Rawalpindi District). It adjoins the proposed tehsil of Circle Bakote in the Abbottabad region. During the British Raj, its altitude was originally established at 7,000 feet, but its present accepted altitude is 2,300 m (7,500 ft) above sea level.

Murree is accessible by road from the centre of the Islamabad/Rawalpindi area. It is still associated with Britain; many British fruits (including cherries, raspberries and strawberries) thrive locally. There is a church, built in 1857, located at the centre of the town, which is still used as a place of worship. Many houses around the church are still standing, functioning mostly as hotels. Old traditional restaurants have been replaced by fast food shops and newer restaurants. Some old places of accommodation, such as the Rich Villa Inn and Gulberg Hotel, have completely disappeared. A typical hotel usually provides a motel type accommodation with breakfast and communication access. Newly built hotels are also accessible.

Murree has expanded since 1947 at a rate much greater than that which its infrastructure can sustain. Securing water and electricity supplies has been a constant challenge. The jam-packed bazaar has caught fire a number of times in the last century, and the growth of tourism and a construction boom have left bare hills in their wake.


History
Murree is an example of a hill station set up by the British in the hills of Hazara and Galyat during the mid 19th century. Founded in 1851 by the Governor of Punjab, Sir Henry Lawrence, Murree was originally established for the British troops garrisoned on the Afghan frontier in Rawalpindi[1].

The permanent town of Murree was constructed at Sunnybank in 1853. The church was sanctified in May 1857, and the main road, The Mall, was built. The most significant commercial establishments, the Post Office, general merchants with European goods, tailors and a millinery, were established opposite the church. Until 1947, access to the Mall was restricted for non-Europeans.

Until 1876, Murree was the summer headquarters of the Punjab Local Government, which was later moved to Simla.

The railway connection with Lahore, the capital of the Punjab Province, made Murree a popular resort for Punjab officials, and the villas and other houses erected for the accommodation of English families gave it a European aspect. It was described in the Gazetteer of the Rawalpindi District, 1893-94:

“ The sanatorium of Murree lied in north latitude 33 54' 30" and east longitude 73 26' 30", at an elevation of 7,517 feet above sea level, and contained a standing population of 1,768 inhabitants, which was, however, enormously increased during the [May-November] season by the influx of visitors and their attendant servants, and shopkeepers. It is the most accessible hillstation in the Punjab, being distant from Rawalpindi only a five hours' journey by tonga dak. Magnificent views are to be obtained in the spring and autumn of the snow crowned mountains of Kashmir; and gorgeous sunset and cloud effects seen daily during the rains [July-August]. Part of the station, especially the Kashmir end, are also well wooded and pretty.[2] ”

Part of the station, especially the Bhurban, Rawat, Osia, Dewal, and adjoining Circle Bakote 1st Union Council Birote, are also well wooded and pretty.

“ People who plan to go to Murree, usually also go to Nathia Gali, Ayubia, Dunga Gali, Khaira Gali, Changla Gali, Patriata, Bhurban, Jhika Gali, Mohra Sharif Murree, Abbottabad and Thandiani. ”

The British Raj quickened the pulse of the district when it took control of the Murree Hills, but the quiet routine of the ordinary hillman was never seriously interrupted or changed. During the Raj, the hills and valleys of Murree had more dense forests than today. It even had a variety of wild life. It is difficult to say when, where and how the first human dwelling started on Murree hills. From the layman’s point of view, it happened roughly a thousand years back. This assumption is based upon the study of old graves and centuries old plants found growing in the vicinity. The construction and style of graves, the direction in which they are made also help in determining their age.


1857 War of Independence
In the summer of 1857, the local tribes of Murree and Hazara, including the Abbasi and Tanoli, planned to attack the British Army. The campaign was led by the chief of the Abbasi tribe, Sardar Sherbaz Khan, and by Malik Nawab Bahadur Khan Tanoli. They fought respectably against the British Army, giving the British considerable difficulties. The British Army eventually signed an agreement with the local Abbasi tribe, which was refused by the Tanoli tribe, dividing the opposition to the British. The British Army later ignored the agreement to take control of Murree again. Malik Nawab Bahadur Khan Tanoli became notorious as the toughest opponent in the subcontinent.
