Mahamaya Temple, Jammu Overview

Situated behind the majestic Bahu Fort and overlooking the glorious Tawi River, the Mahamaya Temple is a unique construction with a rich backstory. Unlike most temples of India, this exquisite creation was built to honour Mahamaya, a local freedom fighter of the Dogra community, who sacrificed her life about 14 centuries ago to save her region from foreign invaders. This temple attracts scores of devotees throughout the year who come to pay their respects to the great heroine.

The white-topped beauty surrounded by lush green forests lies in attractive contrast to the glamorous blue sky and the Trikuta mountain ranges in the background. From this spot, one gets a divine panoramic view of Jammu, located 5 km from this site. The imposing structure of the Bahu fort and the magnificence of the Tawi River add to the allure of the sight, making it onto the map of tourists visiting the region. This temple is a tribute to the power and bravery of Indian women, something that is often overlooked. The shrine houses ancient idols of the gallant warrior. The serene vibe of the location helps visitors receive an authentic experience of the tranquillity that this mountain state has to offer.
