Pathankot is a district in Punjab State of India. It has a total of 2 Tehsils in this district.

Pathankot district was created on 27 July 2011. It includes the two sub-divisions of Pathankot and Dhar Kalan. The name Pathankot comes from Pathania Rajput, who was the king of Nurpur. Pathankot was the capital of Nurpur prior to 1849. Pathankot is at the meeting point of the three northern states of Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir.Situated in the foothills of Kangra and Dalhousie, with the river Chakki flowing close by, the city is often used as a rest-stop before heading into the mountains of Jammu and Kashmir, Dalhousie, Chamba, and Kangra, deep into the Himalayas. The ancient Shiva temple Kathgarh is approximately 25 km from PTK. During "Naag panchami," the gap between two shiva parvati holy stones mysteriously narrows, and during "shivrathri" the gap mysteriously widens. The temple is located on the banks of river Beas. Alexander's army camped here for three days and demoralised by the sight of furious and flooded Beas forced their King to call off their mission of world conquest. To reach the temple one has to go to Indora (HP), which is 20 km away from Pathankot.(Source punjabj.gov.in)
