Mahmudiya District

Al-Mahmudiya (المحمودية) is a district in Babylon Governorate, Iraq.

Mahmudiya District has approximately 550,000 inhabitants, about 82 percent of them Shia and the rest Sunni. This ratio is the result of the Iraqi Civil War of 2006-2007, when the Shias of Yusufiya and Iskandariya moved to Mahmudiya, and the Sunnis of Mahmudiya sought refuge in the other two cities. Most of the inhabitants live in rural areas.

Tribal inhabitants of the district comprise of 5 tribes: Al Janabi, Dulaim, Al Ubaid, Qarghoul and Al Jubour
