Chitral (Urdu: چترال‎, Khowar: چھترار): Khowar for "field"), is the capital of the Chitral District, situated on the western bank of the Chitral River in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. It also served as the capital of the princely state of Chitral until 1969.

History[edit]

Nothing definitive is recorded about the town's first settlers. In the 3rd century, Kanishka, the Buddhist ruler of the Kushan empire, occupied Chitral. In the 4th century, the Chinese overran the valley. Raees rule over Chitral began in 1320 and came to an end in the 15th century. From 1571 onwards Chitral was the dominion of the Kator Dynasty until 1969.[5]

The entire region that now forms the Chitral District was a fully independent monarchy until 1895, when the British negotiated a subsidiary alliance with its hereditary ruler, the Mehtar, under which Chitral became a princely state, still sovereign but subject to the suzerainty of the British Raj. Chitral retained a similar status even after its accession to Pakistan in 1969, but was completely incorporated into Pakistan and became an administrative district of Pakistan in 1969.[6]

Geography[edit]

The city has an average elevation of 1,500 m (4,921 ft).

Climate[edit]

Chitral has a Mediterranean climate (Köppen Csa), with warm summers and cold winters.
