It was previously known as the North-West Frontier Province until 2010 when the name was changed to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by the eighteenth Amendment to Pakistan’s Constitution, and is known conversationally by different names. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is the third-biggest region of Pakistan by the size of both populace and economy, however it is geologically the littlest of four.Within Pakistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa shares an outskirt with Punjab, Balochistan, Azad Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan, and Islamabad. It is home to 17.9% of Pakistan’s absolute populace, with most of the area’s occupants being Pashtuns. The region is the site of the old kingdom Gandhara, including the vestiges of its capital Pushkalavati close to present day Charsadda. Initially a fortress of Buddhism, the historical backdrop of the locale was portrayed by incessant intrusions under different Empires because of its land vicinity to the Khyber Pass.
