Dir District


Dir District

Dir District was a district of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province of Pakistan between 1970 and 1996. It was part of Malakand Division.

Dir District was created in 1970 after the princely state of Dir was abolished the year before. Dir District was 5,280 square kilometres in area and lay along the disputed border controlled by the Afghan nationalists. It is situated between Chitral and Peshawar.

In 1996 the district was split into Upper Dir and Lower Dir.
