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.

"Famous pilgrim centre" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
This temple has been famous for Hindu pilgrims. Was attacked by terrorists few years back and thus the security is tight nowadays, not allowed to click photos. One could feel the experience walking barefoot inside the campus.

It is a peaceful kind of place, an ancient temple. Although the nearby market is excellent. If you visit the temple, do spend some time shopping as well.

Seriously you have to lose your pocket. One will find all places there and nearby area to be bouncy by price. But in off seasons and by simply using Hindi one can save him/her from this :p

"Never visit Raghunath Mandir"

  • 0.5/7
  • Posted Jul 29, 2015
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.
