Peshawar

Peshawar is the capital of the Pakistani province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. It also serves as the administrative center and economic hub for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas. Situated in a broad valley near the eastern end of the historic Khyber Pass, close to the border with Afghanistan, Peshawar's recorded history dates back to at least 539 BCE, making it the oldest city in Pakistan and one of the oldest in South Asia. Peshawar was the capital of the ancient Kushan Empire, and was home to what may have been the tallest building in the ancient world, the Kanishka stupa. Peshawar was then sacked by the White Huns, before the arrival of Muslim empires. The city was an important trading Centre during the Mughal era before serving as capital for the Durrani Afghan Empire.

The city of Peshawar has a population of 1,970,042 according to the 2017 census, making it the largest city in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the sixth-largest in Pakistan, while Peshawar District has a population of 4,269,079.

The current name "Peshawar" is derived from the former Sanskrit name of the place, Purushapura (IAST: Puru?apura; "City of Men").

The Arab historian and geographer Al-Masudi noted that by the mid 10th century, the city had become known as Parash?war. After the Ghaznavid invasion, the name was again noted to be Parash?war by Al-Biruni. The city began to be known as Pesh?war by the era of Emperor Akbar, a name that is traditionally said to have been given by Akbar himself.

The new name is said to have been based upon the Persian for "frontier town" or, more literally, "forward city," though transcription errors and linguistic shifts may account for the city's new name. Akbar's bibliographer, Abu'l-Fazl ibn Mubarak, lists the city's name by both its former name Parash?war, transcribed in Persian as ?????????, and Pesh?war (?????).
