JAMMU

THE WINTER CAPITAL of Jammu and Kashmir state, Jammu is located on a bluff of the Shivalik Range, overlooking the northern plains. The main site of interest is the Amar Mahal, once the residence of the maharajas, and today a museum with artifacts relating to the region’s culture and history. Jammu is also the base for the pilgrimage to the cave shrine of the goddess Vaishno Devi in the Trikuta mountains, 50 km (31 miles) away. The shrine attracts four million Hindus every year.
