Bagh-e Bahu Aquarium and Fort: Contains myriads of fishes and few turtles.
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.
The Bahu Fort is situated in the left bank of the river Tawi. It is just 5km from the city. It is one of the most oldest fort in the city. Inside the fort is a temple which is of Goddess Kali. The fort is surrounded by the Bagh-e-Bahu which provide excellent views of Jammu which even has a good cafeteria for snacks.
