District Pulwama came into being in the year 1979 in the larger interests of maintenance of law and order, closer supervision, more effective control and above all to ensure balanced development of the area. The district is centrally located in the valley of Kashmir and is a resting place for adventure tourists since it has abundant water and hospitable countryside. The district has also been nicknamed the rice bowl of Kashmir for its production of rice. Besides Pulwama is famous all over the world for Saffron cultivation which is mainly grown in the Pampore, Kakapora and Pulwama blocks. Pulwama is often called the 'Anand of Kashmir' or 'Dudha-Kul of Kashmir' on account of its high milk production. The National Highway NH1 that connects Srinagar and Jammu passes through Pulwama.
