Paqarhubuni is a city that was part of Bīt-Adini during the reign of the Assyrian king Shalmaneser III (r. 858-824 BC); it might have been part of Bīt-Agūsi while Adad-nērārī (r. 809-782 BC) was king of Assyria. The city and its surrounding region were between the kingdoms of Gurgum and Kummuhu.

The location of the city Paqarhubuni is uncertain. Some scholars place Paqarhubuni to the north of modern Gaziantep, while others suggest that it was south of that modern location. The Helsinki Atlas tentatively identifies Paqarhubuni as Gaziantep (certainty "3" = "uncertain"). Alternatively, it has been suggested that Paqarhubuni was located in the vicinity of Pazarcık since a stele of the Assyrian king Adad-nērārī III (r. 809-782 BC) mentioning the city Paqarhubuni was discovered in a nearby village (Kızkapanlı) during the construction of a dam.
