About State

Jammu and Kashmir is a large region in the south- and southeast portion of Kashmir which is administered by India as a state and often denoted by the acronym, J&K. It is located mostly in the Himalayan mountains and shares borders with the Indian states of Himachal Pradesh and Punjab to the south. The Line of Control separates it from the Pakistani-administered territories of Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan in the west and north respectively, and a Line of Actual Control separates it from the Chinese-administered territory of Aksai Chin in the east.
