विजयेन्द्र कुमार माथुर[2] ने लेख किया है ...जयस्वामीपुर (AS, p.358) के विषय में कल्हण की 'राजतरंगिणी' (स्टाइन का अनुवाद 1,168-71) से ज्ञात होता है कि इस नगर को 'हुष्क' या 'हुविष्क' नामक राजा ने बसाया था। यह राजा कुषाण सम्राट कनिष्क का उत्तराधिकारी था। इसने ही 'हुष्कपुर' बसाया था, जो वर्तमान जुकूर है। जयस्वामीपुर का, जो कश्मीर में स्थित था, अभिज्ञान संभव नहीं है।
