The rich history of Jammu has been plagued with destructions that have brought down many structures. But the Bahu Fort stands sturdy till date. It was originally built by Raja Bahulochan more than 3,000 years ago. The fort that we see today, was furnished and developed by the Dogra rulers in the 19th century. Within the structure, there lies a terraced garden and a temple dedicated to Goddess Kali. This imposing structure provides a panoramic view of Jammu. The fort represents the lavish lifestyle of the Dogra Kings and the regal families that ruled over Jammu. Bahu temple within the premises of the fort act as a major attraction with pilgrims flocking the temple on Sundays and Tuesdays to offer their prayers. It is a regarded auspicious feature and continues to remain so till date.
