A land of grand ancient temples and beautiful palaces, Jammu is the winter capital of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Nestled against the backdrop of the snow-capped Pir Panjal Mountains, this southernmost unit of the state of Jammu & Kashmir is studded with an incredibly beautiful landscape. This winter capital of the state is the leaping off point for the magnificent religious and natural attractions that lure the tourists and devotees to the other parts of the region. Be it the multi-hued flags representing the temples and shrines in the city, the tantalizing aromas that lift and diffuse from its spectacular cuisine or even the snowcapped mountains that promise adventure and action, it has something to offer to everyone. Appropriately called the City of Temples because of the profusion of shrines dotting the landscape, Jammu is a travel destination on its own right.
