Khuiratta, Khoi Ratta also known as Wadi e Bnah, is a city of Kotli District, Azad Kashmir. In 2010 it became the headquarters of the district subdivision.


Khuiratta and its surrounding areas are very popular among tourists. At approximately a distance of 4 kilometres from Khuiratta is a famous shrine of "Mai Totti Sahiba" also known as Darbar Mai Toti. Another known shrine of "Hazrat Baba Ali Lashkar" is located at Dheri Sahibzadian. Both the locations are visited by hundreds of people daily. Late Sardar Aziz Ahmed started the construction of one of the biggest hospitals of Azad Kashmir in Khuiratta.

Khuiratta is also famous for its besakhi mela. For many years this mela was being held in Diyari Na Bagh. Lately it has been moved to Sihoor Beelaa as it caused much disturbance to the local residents. Thousands of people gather from all over the country to view the attractions offered by the mela. Khui Ratta is the only place in Azad Kashmir where this mela is organised. This mela lasts for three days; activities include bull racing, wrestling, football and other form of traditional entertainment.[citation needed]

Villages and community[edit]

Smaller villages located in Khuiratta have mosques. They are also home to shrines of some religious scholars like Hazrat Mian Imam Baksh of Hozra near Tokahn. There is also a shrine of Pir Haider Shah of Dehari Bagh. saidpur

Few years back Aziz welfare trust constructed a huge hospital, which was considered to be a mega project. However the Hospital could not get into its 2nd phase due to death of Mr. Abdul Aziz (Chairman of Aziz Welfare Trust) therefore it is just a building. These days one of the Non Governmental Organization has established an international level community health center (Rbhc), which is providing free medical consultation, medicine and lab facilities to poor people of khuiratta.

Khuiratta is connected to kotli on one side, nakyal on west LOC on east and on south is charoi. Khoi Ratta is connected to main road to Jammu(India Held part).

Most of people works in foreign countries of the world, especially in Europe, America and Middle East and United Kingdom . This credit goes to late great Zaheer Khokhar who lives in Khuiratta, who sent a lot of people abroad and especially thousands of people to United Kingdom make a livelihood. This exodus of people has meant that many thousands of people from Khuiratta and surrounding areas now live and work in the UK and Europe. Their remittances have helped the local economy and land and property prices are rocketing in the area. As a result there is a boom in building houses and villas.


Khuiratta has two Govt. degree colleges for both boys and girls and four private colleges.
