Jammu and Kashmir
How to study this subject
Jammu is the state's winter capital and pre-Independence was once the seat of J&K's Dogra dynasty. Religiously Hindu, Jammu dubs itself as the Ďcity of templesí. Few of these temples are historically compulsive, and for foreign tourists thereís little pressing need to hang around longer than necessary to make transport connections to Amritsar, Srinagar or Dharamsala.
But if you've time to kill, consider one of the set three- to four-hour sightseeing circuits offered by certain autorickshaw drivers (₹350 to ₹500). These usually include the tall towered Ranbireshwar Mandir, the glitteringly colourful Krishna and Shiva caves of Gupawala Mandir, the large but squat 19th-century Bahu Fort and the Disney-esque concrete gods of riverside Har-ki-Paori Mandir.
