Places to Visit in Jammu
Jammu, the winter capital of the maharajas (the region’s previous Hindu rulers) and the union territory’s second-largest city, was originally the seat of the Dogra dynasty. Hinduism is practised by more than two-thirds of the population in the area. The majority of Jammu’s Hindus dwell in the southern part of the city and are closely linked to Punjabi-speaking peoples in Punjab state; many speak Dogri. The Jammu area is home to the majority of Sikhs in the union territory. To the northwest, however, the number of Muslims rises, with Muslims being a large majority in the area surrounding the western town of Punch.
Jammu‘s temples are well-deservedly famous. In fact, it is renowned as the city of temples, and its temples, forts, woods, and mighty ziarats tend to overwhelm its palaces, forts, and forests. If Bahu Mata is Jammu’s presiding goddess, Peer Budhan Ali Shah’s dargah is the other shrine that protects Jammuites.
Jammu is named after Jambu Lochan, a prominent local ruler who ruled in the ninth century and was the brother of Bahu. Raja Jambu Lochan chose this land to establish his capital, Jambupura, on the right bank of the Tawi, overlooking the fort of his brother, King Bahu. Jambupura was renamed Jammu later on.
