[1] Kashmir is an area which now straddles the border between Pakistan and India, so this reference could be for either Pakistani Kashmir or Indian Kashmir.

[2] Mesopotamia is the land of the Tigris/Euphrates river basin, corresponding roughly to modern-day Iraq and Kuwait, the eastern part of Syria, and borderlands around Iran/Iraq and Syria/Turkey.

[3] Mian Mir appears to have been a person, rather than a place. He was venerated as a Sufi Muslim saint and lived in the Lahore region of Pakistan. I cannot further identify a location.
