 Jammu Tour

Jammu and Kashmir is situated in the north of India surrounded by the Himalayan Mountains. The state is the sixth biggest state of the country. The state is divided in three major divisions as: Jammu, Kashmir region and Ladakh. Srinagar forms the summer capital and Jammu its winter capital.

Jammu, the ancient city of temples is the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, the crown of India. Nestling in the foothills of the Himalayas, with the river Tawi flowing alongside, Jammu is the place that Raja Jambhu Lochan discovered one day while he was on a hunting trip. He decided to build a city on this land where no living creature seemed to bear enmity towards each other. Little is known of Jammu's subsequent history until, in 1730 AD, it came under the rule of the Dogra king, Raja Dhruv Deva. The Dogra rulers moved their capital to the present site and Jammu became an important centre of art and culture, especially the Pahari school of paintings.

Today, as if in testimony to Raja Jambhu Lochan's vision, the city of Jammu has come to be known as the 'City Of Ancient Temples'. Innumerable temples and shrines, with glittering 'Shikhars' soaring into the sky dot the city's skyline, creating the ambience of a holy and peaceful city.

Jammu's close proximity to Mata Vaishno Devi's shrine makes it a place of great religious importance. Apart from temples and shrines, Jammu boasts of a number of other places of great tourist interest.
