The space between the walls in the shrine are encrypted with images of the Gods while the main shrine consists of moving paintings of Ramayana, Mahabharata, and the Bhagavad Gita.

2. Bahu Fort:

The Bahu Fort, located 5km from the center of the city, stands tall on the left bank of the Tawi river. One of the oldest monuments in the city, the fort was constructed by Raja Bahucholan over 3000 years ago. The Dogra rulers then made renovations to the fort to extend its reach. It is said that the construction of the city of Jammu itself and the fort are closely linked, making the fort a must visit.
