If you are moving to Jammu, be ready to be immersed in religious fervor and shopping. Rajma chawal, khata chicken, and kalhadi kulcha are the bon appétit of local cuisine. Malls have come up, and there are high-quality restaurants as well as local ones. The people here are simple, and the crime rate is almost zero. It’s cold in the winters, and summers are extreme. There is hardly any gap between summer and winters. Katra is a one-hour drive, and Udhampur is 1.5 hours away. Himachal is just 3 hours away.

Jammu and Kashmir is the ninth Union Territory of The Republic of India. The Jammu city is also known as the ‘City of Temples’ and is located on the banks of River Tawi. Jammu is the summer capital of UT, which is enriched with royal Dogra culture. Shri Vaishno Devi is the foremost pilgrimage sight in the region to visit.

Mostly getting its fame by being home to the popular shrine of Mata Vaishno Devi, the Jammu region in the newest Union Territory of India, is ideal to plan a holiday. The region of Jammu might have been a little overshadowed by the beauty of Kashmir, but it has tremendous tourism potential with numerous religious places to seek the blessings of the almighty; offbeat mountainous places that are ideal for trekking and biking adventure; and rich culture to understand about the region better.

Jammu is essentially a good break from the monotony, one can holiday here for not only seeking spirituality in its many sacred places like Mata Vaishno Devi, Raghunath Temple, Peer Kho Cave, Dera Baba Banda, but also enjoy a hill holiday in its tourist destinations of Patnitop and Doda. Nature lovers can fall in love with Jammu’s beautiful lakes like Mansar Lake and the ethereal beauty of Patnitop and Doda. Wildlife enthusiasts can get their share of thrill at Kishtwar National Park.
