It has been narrated to be the site of the crossing of the Jhelum river by the forces of Alexander the great facing King Porus.

Mangla The name Mangla (منگلا)is derived from the name of a small village that was situated in District Mirpur within the State of Jammu Kashmir. This village was located to the west of and at the foothills of Mangla's fort {which also derived its name from the same village}. It was surrounded from other three sides by the semicurvature of river Jhelum flowing from North to South. It bordered Jhelum district, the right bank of river Jhelum being a boundary between the State of Jammu Kashmir and Punjab province of Pakistan.
Mangla Prior to construction of Mangla Dam, in March 1962, almost all the inhabitants of the ancient Mangla village moved to Mangla Hamlet, therefore this town represents Mangla in a true sense. Mangla is located 12 km from the city Mirpur at the mouth of the Mangla Dam. The construction of the dam reservoir, which has a perimeter of 400 km, has turned it into a place of interest.

This was against the international convention that large water reservoirs would not be targeted in war. As a consequence, the hydro project was temporarily out of service.
Mangla Dam Mangla reservoir had an initial reservoir capacity of 5.88 Million Acre-feet (MAF), which reduced to 4.674 MAF in 2005 due to the sedimentation & was likely to reduce further. To counteract this phenomenon, the "Mangla Dam Raising Project" was started in 2004 and the main dam, spillway and its allied works were completed in 2009 at a cost of Rs. 101.384 billion. This project effectively raised the dam height by 30 feet to 482 feet (147 m), thereby raising the maximum water conservation level from 1202 feet to 1242 feet. This increased the dam's storage capacity by an additional 2.88 MAF from 4.51 MAF to 7.39 MAF. Besides, it is expected that after raising the height of the Mangla Dam by 30 feet, the power house will generate 12 percent additional energy per year which will increase its installed capacity from 1,000 MW to 1,120 MW.
