Raga Jaunpuri , Jonpuri, or Javanpuri is a rāga in Hindustani classical music in the Asavari thaat. Some experts like Pandit Omkarnath Thakur consider it indistinguishable from the shuddha rishabh Asavari. Its attractive swaras also make it a popular raga in the Carnatic circles with a number of compositions in South India being tuned to Jonpuri.
