Ushkur is an ancient Buddhist site near Baramulla in Kashmir.
Baramulla is located on the Jhelum river around 55 km from the capital city Srinagar. It was an important trading centre during British rule, as it formed the western entrance to the Kashmir Valley. "The town of Huṣkapura is undoubtedly the modern Uṣkűr, situated opposite to Varămul (Skr. Varāhamūla, vulgo Bāramūla) on the left bank of the Vitastā where the latter leaves the Valley of Kaçmlr."
