Juhuṇḍara (जुहुण्डर) is the name of a tribe mentioned as inhabiting the region around ancient Kaśmīra (Kashmir valley) according to the Nīlamatapurāṇa.—The Juhuṇḍaras seem to be the same as the Juhuḍas of the Vāyu Purāṇa, the Jaguḍas of the Matsya Purāṇa, the Jāhutas of the Viṣṇudharmottara Purāṇa and Jāguḍas of the Mārkaṇḍeya Purāṇa and the Mahābhārata. They are mentioned along with some tribes living to the north-west of India, namely, the Lampākas (inhabitants of Laghman), the Śūlikas (the Sogdians), the Avagānas (Afghanas) and the Gāndhāras.
