Manwan ni hell is the lowest place in Union Council, Birote, it is located on three provincial borders: North-West Frontier Province, Punjab and Azad Kashmir on the right bank of the Jhelum River. This place was of historical importance and contains relics as it was a crossing point between Kashmir and Taxila during the time of the Gandharan kingdom.

Manwan ni hell was the first town of the Kethwal and Satti tribes who settled much of the current Circle Bakote and Murree Hills area before the arrival of Karlal and Dhond Abbasi tribes six centuries ago.

This place was linked to Pattan (Old Kohala) in north with a road along right bank of River Jhelum to Mirpur in AJK. In that time it was a cultural as well as a business centre, but it had lost its importance in the beginning of nineteenth century (1750–1800) when the Ghakkars failed to control all this region and it was occupied by Ranjit Singh's field marshal Hari Singh Nalwa in 1803. A battle occurred there and all houses of Kethwal and Satti tribes were gutted, all ladies and children became slaves by brutal Hari Singh Nalwa and his army. He developed another place Pattan (Old Kohala) as a business and trade centre and established an army post at old Dak Bungalow. Manwan Ni hell is called this place now because after the bloodshed of Nalwa Army only old and oldest ladies of Kethwal and Satti tribes were remained there.

There are a few historic graves facing in the east and west directions in an old graveyard of the Kethwal tribe showing the historical remnant of the Gandhara grave culture before the dawn of Islam in the Taxila Kingdom.
