Jammu is the southernmost-part of the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir which sits proudly on the magnificent Shivalik mountain ranges. The Winter Capital of Kashmir, Jammu is a holy and peaceful city known for its majestic temples, religious shrines, glittering "shikhars", and cultural heritage. Since it is also the starting point to the hugely popular Vaishno Devi Temple and Amarnath Yatra, it is visited by tourists from far and wide.
Nestled against the backdrop of the snow-capped Pir Panjal Mountains, Jammu forms part of the transition between the Himalayan range in the north and the dusty plains of Punjab in the south. The Shivalik hills cut across the area from the east to the west while the rivers Ravi, Tawi and Chenab cut their way through the region.
The City of Temples, Jammu houses the famous Maha Kali Temple which is considered second only to the Vaishno Devi Temple. Originally found in 14th Century BC, the area was ruled over by Dogra dynasty in the pre-independence era. Buddhist Stupas dating back to the 2nd century AD is peppered throughout Jammu, speaking volumes of its rich heritage.
The eccentricity of Jammu is prevalent is also prevalent in its Dogra cuisine the crown of which is the scrumptious Wazwan (traditional Kashmiri buffet). Jammu is truly a melange of pilgrimage, leisure, natural beauty and heritage.
