Raghunath Mandir Overview

Ranked 3 of 25 sightseeing in Jammu

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.

Impressive

I found the temple impression but not very happy with the priests' behaviour. They were expecting / asking each and every visitor to donate something whenever one was going near the idols. In my case, I had to donate INR10 / 20 to each and every idol that I visited. The money doesn't matter as one who is visiting the temple will obviously donate some money but asking each and every visitor inside the temple was not in a good taste.

Famous Temple

a good spiritual place. Well maintained and cleanliness taken care of. Has temples of all Indian deities and priests are sincere in their services. Better to avoid during hot sunny days. Sufficient time is required to completely see the temple.

The mandir is a very good mandir to see in Jammu city I. E the temples city of India

I shall sincerely advice the people whoever want to visit the Temples City in Jammu, please visit the Raghunath Mandir where you can find all the gods in one place. But don't enter into the moolasthan (where the poojaries perform pooja). all poojaries inside the temple are only money minded which you will not find anywhere else in India. I further advice the people to visit the temple only to have dharshan from outside and come out peacefully without entering into the moolasthan and you will not get any thing else and finally you will realise that you are highly looted by those people.

It has each and every God within one campus

Ragunath temple is one of its kind in India for Hinduism.This temple has each and every God's worshipped statue within one Campus.So one can feel spiritual bliss by worshiping your god whomever one worship.But pandits are very greedy don't forget to have 10 rs note packet in your pocket otherwise you will expense all your money.One will be forced too many times before every gods statue to offer chadhawa so it is must.But this only reason should not stop one to viAIT this temple.

Raghunath Mandir of Banking and financial institution

One such place where you can not connect to god is this place..not because of temple but their trustees and Pandit who asks nothing but money..they show you a plate full of notes worth rs 500 n 1000 in the thali and ask you to put some.. if you don't they won't even give you parsad..then they won't allow you to skip any small temple inside the premises..and every temple there is one Pandit who will ask money from you...all this mandir is about technique of taking out money from people...this place is a must for all marketing people..

Spiritual experience

This temple is one of the biggest temples in Jammu situated in Jammu Bazaar area.Images/statues of almost ALL Hindu gods are there and one temple is consisting of 33 Crore gods on single spread stone. All incarnations of God Vishnu are also in statue form and small description of each incarnation is also given at respective place. Various types of God Ganesh are also there. The temple was under renovation when we visited it in December 2015.We have to be,however careful from some Pujaries who may like to extract more money from you. This is my 4th visit to this temple.

Amazing place to visit

Just amazing place I had ever seen. The best thing about the temple is that it is one of the oldest temple in J&K. You will have lot of fun there watching Crores of PINDIS of Hindu god and goddess.
