Akhnoor is a town of Jammu district in the state of Jammu & Kashmir, India. Located 28 km from Jammu, Akhnoor is located in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is an extremely beautiful town. The picturesque town is located on the banks of the Chenab River. The Akhnoor Tehsil is divided into two Revenue Blocks - Akhnoor & Khour. Akhnoor is also divided into three Education Zones of Akhnoor, Khour & Chowki Choura.

Akhnoor has historical places to visit, such as the caves where the Pandavas stayed during their exile. Close to the town there is a Parashurama temple where Parashurama Jayanti is celebrated annually, on the same day in May as Akshaya Tritiya. The border is around 18 km  away by road, but the aerial distance is only some 8 km. There is a beautiful park built on the bank of Chenab stretching from Jiya Pota Ghat to Parashurama Temple. It looks like a glittering necklace during the late evening and during night hours under beautiful lights on the bank.
