Peshawar Cantonment

Peshawar Cantonment is a cantonment adjacent to Peshawar in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. The Peshawar Cantonment was established on the remains of old town site and the graveyard. It was as irregular and oblong in shape as it is today and originally occupied an area of 09 square kilometers. It was occupied by British troops soon after annexation of Punjab in 1848 – 49. After the fall of Sikhs in 1849 and annexation of Punjab to the British Empire, a Military Garrison was established at Peshawar during 1868 on the remains of old town site and ancient grave yards.
