Birote Kalan is one of the 51 Union councils of Abbottabad District in the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan. [ [ Administrative Units of District Abbottabad] ]


The name of the union council "Birote Kalan" means Greater Birote, this is to differentiate it from the smaller settlement of "Birote Khurd". The words Khurd and Kalan (little and big) are administrative terminology dating back to Mughal times - to differentiate two areas with the same name, hence Birote Khurd means little Khurd. The words Khurd (small) and Kalan (Big) are taken form Persian.(cf. Britannia major, "Greater Britain" and Britannia minor "Lesser Britain").


Birote Kalan is located in the south eastern part of Abbottabad District and borders the Bagh District of Kashmir and consequently was affected by the 2005 Pakistan earthquake as the epicentre was in Kashmir.


The Union Council is subdivided into the following areas: Berote Kalan, Berote Khurd, Kahoo Gharbi and Kahoo Sharqi.
