Visiting Jammu - Renowned as city of temples with attractive surroundings, a perfect destination for those looking for secluded atmosphere, Jammu is located at the foot hills of great Himalayas and is the winter capital of the state Jammu and Kashmir. It is believed that Raja Jamboolochan founded this exotic city in 14th century BC. The city, which figured in ancient epic Mahabharata, was named first as Jamboo, but later it has become Jammu. History and archeological evidence says that Jammu was the integral part of Harappa civilization.

To list a few important attractions Shri Mata Vaishno Devi temple, Raghunath Mandir, Gauri Kund Temple, Bahu fort, Amar Mahal, Amarnath caves,  Mubarak Mandi Palace complex, Gadhadharji Temple, Dogra Art museum and many more. Surinsar Lake is a natural attraction here.
