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.
