Murree is referred
to as the Queen of Pakistan's hill stations.
She is, however, much more than a queen
because the rest of the stations are smaller
in size and inadequate in social amenities and
requisites of daily life. Murree is one of the
largest resort towns in the Galyat area of
Pakistan, and is the capital city of Murree
Murree is accessible by road from the centre of
the Islamabad and Rawalpindi areas. 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.
Bhurban, boosting with five star Pearl
Continental Hotel owned by Pakistan's best hotel
chain and a nine hole Golf course has cropped
recently as another tourist attraction in Murree
area. Lying at an altitude of 6000 ft, Bhurban is
situated at a distance of 13 kilometers from Murree
on one of main roads leading to Azad Kashmir.
