Awantipora Railway Station is situated in notified area of Awantipora in the Pulwama district.[1] It is the headquarters of Pulwama division of Northern railway zone.[2][unreliable source?] It is one of the four stations in Pulwama district, the others being Pampore railway station, Kakapora railway station and Panchgam railway station respectively.

History[edit]

The station has been built as part of the Jammu–Baramulla line megaproject, intending to link the Kashmir Valley with Jammu Tawi and the rest of the Indian railway network.

Design[edit]

Like every other station in this mega project, this station also features Kashmiri wood architecture, with an intended ambience of a royal court which is designed to complement the local surroundings to the station. Station signage is predominantly in Urdu, English and Hindi.[note 1]
