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.

"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.

It was an awesome place to visit. Clean and hygienic. There was very tight security by our Indian Army and the BSF jawans which really made us feel proud.

"Effects of consumerism creeping in"

  • 1.00/7
  • Posted Jun 30, 2014
Ragunath Mandir is a very famous place. But, the 'pujaris' at the mandir are totally concerned about 'dakshina', and their behaviour with visitors there, is a serious issue.
