Reasons to go to Jammu

1India's Paradise
India's Paradise

HolidayIQ Reviewer Anbu Mathika adds, “A perfect picnic spot The Mansar Lake situated in Jammu is the best option for a family outing. If you are in a mood for spending some valuable time with kids and your relatives, it will be worth visiting. Apart from this, it is like a mini zoo, filled with many animals like the Deer, Turtles, different types of Fishes and other creatures also, you can find innumerable number of Fish in the lake. There is also a fort inside and one can have a good photo session in it. As I like adventure, I found it less interesting and would not like to suggest this place for those who want to explore and experience something new always. Otherwise, it is a one time type of thing.”

Conquer The Highest Motorable Road In The World - Khardung La

HolidayIQ Traveller Abhijit Sarkar shares, “Dream come true to stand at the highest motorable road of the WORLD. Feel really thrilling although a bit tough to breath. It's only 40 km from Leh but the roads take you up slowly as we become more acclimatized as we move up. Hats of to bikers who scale this road and it's only possible who dares. Met many women bikers who trailed along with us to the top and we really feel proud when we shake hands with them at the top. Yes one has to be mentally prepared / physically acclimatized to start this journey.”

5Khatta Meat, Jammu
Khatta Meat, Jammu

Khatta Meat is a dogra speciality from Jammu. Don't forget to try Khatta Meat when here. This is a tasty dish where mutton is cooked with pomegranate or lime juice, giving the meat a sour, tangy taste. The most interesting part of the recipe is the flavour of burning charcoal, soaked in mustard oil, that combines with the meat to give it an exotic taste.

HolidayIQ Traveller Farhan says, "I had a great time having the wazwan which was delicious and tasty. The people here were helpful. It really was great to be there."

Jammu Overview

History of Jammu

Set against the snow-capped Pir Panjal Mountains, Jammu lies between the Himalayan range in the north and the plains of Punjab in the south. Lakes, valleys and a diverse terrain make the entire region quite varied. Forests of oak and chestnut cover the lower areas while deodar and pine add to the beautiful landscape at higher altitudes. Jammu, the second largest city of Jammu and Kashmir becomes the administrative capital in winters due to excessive snowfall in Srinagar. Named after King Jambu Lochan, who is said to have established it in 9th century BC, Jammu is typically a traditional city made up of several ethnic communities engaged in agriculture or small scale industries.

Temples dot the entire region, while there are a few mosques in the region as well.

Things To Do in Jammu

Temples dominate the sightseeing highlights here. Raghunath Mandir in the heart of the city is the largest temple complex in northern India and is devoted to Lord Ram. The shrine of Vaishno Deviji is yet another popular pilgrimage destination situated close by. Visit the Bahu Fort which is home to Bawey Wali Mata Temple. Other temples in the vicinity include Ranbireshwar Temple and Panchbakhtar Temple near River Tawi.
