it came to be known as Akhnoor during the Mughal reign. The reason behind this is that the Mughal emperor’s wife had vision problem in her eyes and she was prescribed to wash her eyes with the holy water of Chenab using some ayurvedic medicines by a local Hindu priest. The queen strictly followed the prescription and her vision was restored. Hence the city was named Akhnoor as in Urdu the word ‘noor’ means vision/glow/shine and the word ‘aankh’ means the eye.
