Murree is a hill station, summer resort and the administrative center of Murree Tehsil, Pakistan, which is a subdivision of Rawalpindi District and includes the Murree Hills.
Murree was the summer capital of the British Raj in the Punjab Province (British India), until 1864. As a popular tourist destination located in the northwest Himalayas at an average altitude of 2,291 meters (7,516 ft), the city of Murree, draped in forests of pine, and oak, experiences pleasant summers and cold, snowy winters. The city is famous for its buildings styled in Tudorbethan and neo-gothic architecture dating from the colonial era.
Murree is located along the Islamabad-Murree Highway, some 58.3 km (36.2 mi) northeast of Islamabad.
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.
