Paqarhubuni is a region between the kingdoms of Gurgum and Kummuhu, possibly in the vicinity of modern Gaziantep or Kızkapanlı.

Paqarhubuni is also the name of a city. During the reign of Shalmaneser III (r. 858-824 BC), the region and the city were part of Bīt-Adini and, while Adad-nērārī (r. 809-782 BC) was king of Assyria, they might have been part of Bīt-Agūsi. The city and region of Paqarhubuni are in the vicinity of modern Gaziantep. Some scholars place it to the north, while others suggest that it was south of this modern location. The Helsinki Atlas identifies the city Paqarhubuni as Gaziantep, but that identification is uncertain.
