More about Mirpur, Azad Kashmir

Mirpur is the capital of Mirpur district and is the largest city of Azad Kashmir. The city itself has gone through a process of modernization, while most of the surrounding area remains agricultural. Mirpur is known for its grand buildings and large bungalow-houses primarily funded through its ex-pat community, which comes mainly from the United Kingdom, Europe, Hong Kong, Middle East and North America. The main crop cultivated during summer is millet and pulses. However, there are places where other crops such as wheat, maize and vegetables are also grown. The produce of quality rice from the paddy fields of khari Sharif between Upper Jhelum Canal and Jhelum river are very famous and popular for its aroma and taste. The production of electricity, through Mangla Dam makes this district somewhat unusual in the entire region which provides energy needs for Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Northern Punjab province.A significant portion of the population from the district migrated to the United Kingdom in mid to late 1950s and in early 1960s – mostly to West Yorkshire, East Midlands, West Midlands, Luton, Peterborough, Derby and East London. 70% of the British Pakistanis are Mirpuris. For this reason Mirpur is sometimes known as "Little England". Many products from the UK are found in this city. Many shops in the city accept the Pound sterling.
