Bahu Fort Park

Located in the serene city of Jammu, Bahu Fort is an ancient fort which was constructed 3000 years ago by Raja Bahulochan and was refurbished by Raja Gulab Singh in 19th century. Bawe Wali Mata Temple is present near Bahu Fort where the presiding deity is Goddess Kali and offerings like flowers, sweets and coconut are dedicated to the Goddess by the believers. From Bahu fort Jammu, the panoramic sight of the gurgling Tawi River is visible, as the fort stands tall on a high plateau. There is a Mughal-style garden called bagh e bahu present nearby which gives a sweeping view of the Jammu city. It is a very popular tourist spot among the tourists. Bahu Fort is also famous for its Bahu Mela which takes place during the times of Navratri. Bahu Fort is a reflection of the rich history and culture of Jammu and Kashmir.

Believed to be one of the oldest forts in Jammu, Raja Jambu Lochan supposedly build this fort after he witnessed the incredible sight of a tiger and a goat drinking water from the Tawi River on a hunting trip.He thought of this incident as a holy symbol of peace and brotherhood and decided to build the fort where he saw the animals, with the hope that it would inspire people to maintain amicable relationships with each other. The fort also houses the Mahakali Goddess temple, popularly known as ‘Bawe Wali Mata’ temple.While you're there, don't forget to visit the subcontinent's biggest underground aquarium at Bagh-e-Bahu, the fort's garden. The aquarium is built in the shape of a fish. You enter through its mouth and after exploring the fascinating aquatic world, you exit through the fish tail.You can reach the fort by taking an auto-rickshaw or taxi from the city centre.
