Mamyan is a small village in Jhelum District, in the Punjab (Pakistan) province of Pakistan. It is located at an altitude of 223 metres (734 ft).[1]


Most income is generated from people settled abroad mainly the UK and Spain. The main crop is wheat, corn and rice are also grown if weather is right. The River Bunhar is a growing threat to crops and fields. There are now many shops run by local villagers selling everything from produce to beauty products.

Mamyan is becoming a prospering village with many new outstanding houses being built over the last ten years. The violence that blighted the village over last few decades is now decreasing meaning more harmony in the village.

However, rising food prices coupled with high rates of unemployment, means most residents struggle to eke out a living in a difficult environment.


The village is located 20 km south-west of Jhelum city, 3 km West of River Jhelum and 0.5 km North of River Bunhar.

Famous people[edit]

Haji Master Hanif Ex- Headmaster Mamyan Middle School

Haji Hanif or Master Hanif as he is affectionately known as by the whole generation of the people of Mamyan.

Master Hanif worked tirelessly to make the school from a primary school to a middle school back in the mid 70's. This provided valuable education for local Mamyan children and meant they no longer had to go to Chotlla or Chakri to continue their middle school education. The middle school also benefitted many other surrounding villages because they started sending their kids from Jagta, Chak Mehmda, Alang etc. to Mamyan because Mamyan was a lot closer.
