Akhnoor is an ancient town. It is 20 kilometers from Jammu. It is present on the banks of the River Chenab. The backdrop of this place is decorated with the Shivaliks mountains. The place derives its name from two words – ‘Akh’ which means eye and ‘noor’ meaning light. There is a massive fort in the town which dominates the area. The Fort stands firmly on a cliff and overlooks Chenab. The place has its remains from the Indus Valley civilization. The remains of a Buddhist monastery are found near Ambaran. The structure dates back to 1st to 7th century BC. The banks of River Chenab also saw the coronation ceremony of Maharaja Gulab Singh.

Eighteen kilometers by road lies the border, the aerial distance being only 8 kilometers. On September 10, 1992, a bridge built across Chenab was washed away. A new bridge was constructed and opened and April 13, 1994. This bridge connects Akhnoor to Jammu and other places.
