Jehngira is a town in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa named after Jehangir Khan Awan, a leader of the Awan tribe. The town is situated on the bank of River Kabul which makes it uniquely administered under two different districts. The Eastern Jehngira falls under the Swabi district while the Western Jehngira falls under the Nowshera District.
Jehngira consists of mainly Pashtuns belonging from Pakistan and Afghanistan. These Pashtuns mainly belong to either of the two tribes which are Khattaks and Awans. The climate of Jehngira is more or less similar of Islamabad however the humidity levels are high due to the presence of river water. The area is surrounded by lush green valleys and high mountains covered with forests which has led to agriculture as a major source of income for majority of the population. Volleyball is the most famous sport played in the area.
