Hazara is a Division of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.
On the dissolution of West Pakistan in 1970, Hazara District and the two tribal agencies were merged to form the new Hazara Division with its capital at Abbottabad. The division was initially composed of three districts (Abbottabad, Kohistan and Mansehra) but within a few years, Haripur district was spun off from Abbottabad District and Battagram District was spun off from Mansehra District.

History


Hazara remained a District right up to its conversion into a Division in 1976. In October 1976, Mansehra was given the status of a fully fledged District, which consisted of Mansehra and Battagram Tehsil. Subsequently in July 1991, Haripur Tehsil was separated from Abbottabad and made into a District. Thus only the old Tehsil of Abbottabad remained, which was declared as Abbottabad District.
In 2000, administrative divisions were abolished and the fourth tier districts were raised to become the new third tier of government in Pakistan.

The Hazara Division is further divided in to Six Districts.
  1. Abbottabad District

  2. Battagram District 

  3. Haripur District 

  4. Kohistan District 

  5. Kala Dhaka District

  6. Mansehra District.
