Jammu & Kashmir

The northern most state of India Jammu & Kashmir has always attracted travellers and visitors, tourists and pilgrims to its cool green heights and deep vales. Jammu, the 'land of the fearless' and the 'land of Gods and Goddesses' was discovered by Raja Jambu Lochan. Cosily placed in the foothills of the Himalayas, Jammu is an ideal short getaway from the hot plains during the summers.

There are charming bazaars crowded with tourists and exclusive boutiques offer the latest in fashion-wear and accessories. There are innumerable temples and shrines dotting the entire cityscape. Ladakh is bounded by two of the world's mightiest mountain ranges - the Great Himalayas and the Karakoram. Geologically speaking, it is a 'young' land - having been formed only a few million years ago by the buckling and folding of the earth's crust as the Indian sub-continent pushed against the immovable mass of Asia.

Kashmir it was that the Mughals fell in love with - a retreat from their city courts and courtiers. It was here that they allowed their imagination to blossom into magnificent, formal gardens with flowering bushes and plants, canals, lakes and fountains.

And, of course, the state has a number of important Hindu and Muslim pilgrim centres such as Vaishno Devi, Amarnath, the Hazratbal Dargah, and the Asrari Sharief.
