Raghunath Mandir is a popular religious shrine located in the city of Jammu. The shrine, dedicated to Lord Rama, was commissioned by Maharaja Gulab Singh, founder of the Kingdom of Jammu and Kashmir in 1835. The construction of the temple was completed by his son Maharaja Ranbir Singh in 1860.

The inner walls of the holy sanctum are covered with gold sheet on all the three sides. There are several galleries in the shrine dedicated to various gods and goddesses associated with the Ramayana. Along with Raghunath Temple, there are 17 other shrines nearby including the Panjbakhtar Temple and Ranbireshwar Temple.

This Rama Temple was the major place of worship of the Dogra royal family. There are several statues of deities and shivalingas along with religious inscriptions. Besides Hindu gods and deities, a figurine of King Ranbir Singh is also placed at the entrance. There is a Sanskrit Library, which has a rich reserve of the rarest collections of manuscripts and ancient books.

"Never visit Raghunath Mandir" new review

  • 0.50/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Never visit this Raghunath Mandir, I'm saying only because of pandit there are very greedy they ask for money, they call you and ask for giving money, harass you if you do not give money to them. Only temple in my life I found where this is happening. Pandits are very greedy there, I'm afraid to visit there again.

Good temple with at least 10 mandirs of various Devi Devtas. The temple is very big and you need at least 2 hours to visit. There is very big market outside the temple.

A very good temple consisting of all the Hindu gods. Besides other temples you also feel the silence in this temple with the blessings of all the gods at the same time.

"Famous temple filled with temples"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Can't remember how many temples it has and how many Hindu Gods it has, nice one must visit if you visiting for first time in Jammu. Photography is not allowed inside, it will take close to 30 mins to cover entire complex. The pandits like other tourist places are greedy though.

Raghunath Temple is one of the largest temple in North India. It is located in Jammu and a very peaceful place, you can worship and pray. Its temple design is very awesome, beautiful and next time I will definitely come with family. I had lots of fun there and enjoyed very well.

"Peaceful environment"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Oct 15, 2014
Good temple to visit, it is one of the best visiting place in Jammu. The temple's tomb is coated with gold, there are too many god and goddesses idol in the temple, shoes are not allowed inside temple premises. The inside environment gives an unknown peace and pleasure.
the temple is a must to see while you go there in vacation.

"Situated in a good place"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Aug 28, 2014
A very attractive mandir situated in market of Jammu. No entry fees, itís situated in a very large areas, almost statutes of every god. The only thing I don't like is that saints are trying to fool people on the name of service and are asking for huge donations.
